    Not the most promising of Friday paintings, but they are naked, so…

    /// Here’s some facts for you eager shrimp eaters,

    know that not all are clean, raised by breeders.

    Parasites and dead skin

    from a dead fish’s fin

    is their diet, they’re true bottom feeders.

    The artist could have at least added a slice of lemon to the painting.

    If this is an invitation

    To partake of a tasty Crustacean,

    I do not dine in venues

    With “pics” on their menus..

    They are simply beneath my station.

    /// The King Crab justly earned his great fame.

    In comparison, shrimp’s put to shame.

    The shrimp can’t do a thing

    to checkmate the crab King

    for he’s only a prawn in the game.

    It’s not a desirable fate

    To find yourself splayed on a plate

    And not merely splayed

    But nudely portrayed

    With your friends- and about to be ate !

    Yet they seem so serene and sedate

    Though their outcome’s beyond debate

    It’s the same as our own.

    The only unknown

    Is the expiration date….

    Where I live, there are lots of shrimps farms – in fact, there’s one right across the road from my casa de campo. I often get my camarón directly from there. Large camarónes run about $2.50 a kilo.

    Mix together a bottle of Heinz chili sauce, a big glob of prepared horseradish, juice of one lemon, dash of Worcestershire sauce. Boil shrimp, peel and devein. Dip in sauce.

    Now I’m drooling.

    Would you settle for lobster or crab

    Or a salmon displayed on a slab

    Of warm, fragrant cedar -

    Or is that bottom-feeder

    The only crustacean you’d grab ?

    Do you find that the sole solution

    To the needs of your constitution

    Is a segmented species

    Which feeds on fish feces ?

    You belong in an institution.

    The shrimp was quite delicious

    The vasodilation pernicious

    When the epinephrine didn’t work

    They had to bury the poor jerk

    In the cemetery behind Saint Aloysius

    Depicted as yeccchhh! in the picture,

    In the shell, they earn no great ardor,

    But relieve them of that bug-like stricture,

    I’ll love them in sauce all Zamor!

    /// Camarão like these come off demonic.

    They’re aggressive from hurts which are chronic.

    Been called “shrimps” since their birth.

    Push for some sense of worth.

    They’ve the complex called Napoleonic.
