I stand amidst
Sea A tall tree
Out of place
Friend The salty wind
Who eats my skin
For each day
I live To feed him

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?
