"Did that sound to you like someone saying 'No, wait! Stop!'?"
"Oh well."

Life is like a mussel
Shell pulled open
And left bare.

You start off
With a shiny shell
And live without a care.

But soon the divers
Lend a hand
And you just sit and glare.

Turns out that life
Is harsher when
The finger has a nail.

My dear, the pouting
Won’t do much,
Without a shell to bare.

So sit there naked
Like a babe
And make the pearl

your flair.
