11th Annual Lobster Fest for Charity

When it comes to charities like Leadership Tomorrow, Les Dames d’Escoffier and Make A Wish
Donors line up in droves to support by savoring a succulent and tasty dish
Thanks to the Lobster Express from Maine that Anderson Seafood would donate
A Lobster Fest that lobster lovers would their taste buds sate
A feast of Maine lobsters in a never ending stream
A day to raise funds on a sunny August on the Newport Beach Civic Green
Money from Lobster Fest for charities that are all first rate
For 11 years the food and entertainment beyond any debate
Uber and Lyft drivers were jumping for joy
All you could eat and all the fine beer and wine to enjoy
A great day for a poet to enjoy with a sirloin steak lover and non lobster fan
A glimpse of why we Americans love to support great causes in this land
A VIP upgrade was the only way to go
Never ending steamed lobsters as stars of the show
Lines were long but the volunteers were quick to spot
Those with canes and bad knees that made standing hurt a lot
Pain no more as one was encouraged to hobble back to retake one’s seat
To enjoy yet more lobster morsels in drawn butter as a treat
A day beyond compare, open wallets to charities share
Six lobsters 90 % shell to be consumed by a poet by the end of the affair
Rabbit statutes and concrete waves overlooking the real waves and setting sun
If the rabbits could speak they would exclaim “Donors to Lobster Fest a job well done”
