Amelia Earhart and the Mutant Crabs of Nikumaroro Island

Though an accomplished pilot,
nothing could prepare Ms. Earhart
for the mutant crabs of Nikumaroro.

Brandishing Fred Noonan’s femur,
poor Amelia fought the good fight,
fought long into the Pacific night,
but a scrap of the Electra’s fuselage
makes a poor shield against

crustacean laser eyestalks.
