Shell - Poem by Nick Kasparie

The shell lies deep beneath the sand
It's hidden from the hands of man
And long it lies without a touch
Awaiting your elusive clutch
Once home to creatures of the sea
The vacant castle harrows thee
For in this house, you once were friend
Now presently our ties distend
As like with crabs you leave the shell
And I am now to live in hell
For shell I am now that you're gone
To scour men, but not for long
