Crabby Haiku

This week's theme: Crabby

Crusty words snapped out
Cranky irascible frown
You’d feel crabby too.

Impenetrable.
Hard shell like a crustacean.
Words spoken tartly.

A sideways scuttle.
Beady eyes and hardened shell
I’m feeling crabby.

Goodness, this is my 101st blog post. Yay!

  9. Thanks Donna, Margo, Ellie, Liz and Scott. I could add a few more crabby haikus since yesterday LOL!
    As Angela asked, yes I was crabby yesterday, all decked out in my layers and layers for the biting cold and then spent an hour in a warm supermarket feeling hot, itchy and tired!

    Oh yes Kitty and Kittie I hadn't thought of the star sign. ;O)
