Day-6 – catch-22 – Enjambment

I stand amidst

The dull 

Sea A tall tree

Out of place 

My only

Friend The salty wind

Who eats my skin

For each day

I live To feed him

Or

Be alone

Story time! 

Many of you have probably heard it. A box of crabs left open in a ship. A random person enquires the captain to why is it so? Captain welcomes the stranger to observe the box for few minutes. He does. The active one of the group starts climbing, half way through, it’s comrades follows. One more step, the crab could have been free. But other crabs pull it down to make way for them, only to be pulled down by an another couple. 

Moral: Don’t have bad friends?

Enjambment – The running-over of a sentence or phrase from one poetic line to the next, without terminal punctuation
