Five Cranky Crabs

  • Written by

Five cranky crabs were digging on the shore.
One swam into a net and then there were four.


Four cranky crabs were floating in the sea.
One got tangled up in seaweed then there were three.


Three cranky crabs were wondering what to do.
One dug a deep, deep hole. Then there were two.


Two cranky crabs were warming in the sun.
One got scooped up in a cup. Then there was one.


One cranky crab was smarter than his friends.
He hid between the jagged rocks.
That's how the story ends.
