A great book of poetry. It hits on all levels. Once you start reading it you will not want to put it down. Great storytelling, deep meaning, passion, emotional, prophetic, and wisdom. A book of poetry that you will not forget. Know and learn what the crab syndrome is all about?

What is the Crab Syndrome? The Crab Mentality-Describes a way of thinking best described by the phrase "if I can't have it, neither can you." The metaphor refers to a pot of crabs in which one tries to escape over the side, but is relentlessly pulled down by the others in the pot.

1.This term is broadly associated with short-sighted, non-constructive thinking rather than a unified, long-term, constructive mentality. It is also often used colloqially in reference to individuals or communities attempting to "escape" a so-called "underprivileged life", but kept from doing so by those others of the same community or nation attempting to ride upon their coat-tails.

2. An abnormal, dysfunctional, retardation, disorder, that a community does not help or support, or give assistance to someone of their own community, who is trying to strive. To purposely hinder ones ability to succeed.

3. Referring to a community, or group of people, resembling crabs in a bucket. That when one tries to leave, the other crabs pull them back down. That if a person tries to excel in life their community does not help them, and prevents them from excelling or leaving the neighborhood or community. Describes a way of thinking, best describes by the phrase, “If I can’t have it neither can you!”

Wikipedia Definition-Crab mentality, sometimes referred to as crabs in the bucket, describes a way of thinking best described by the phrase "if I can't have it, neither can you." The metaphor refers to a pot of crabs. Individually, the crabs could easily escape from the pot, but instead, they grab at each other in a useless "king of the hill" competition (or sabotage) which prevents any from escaping and ensures their collective demise. The analogy in human behavior is that of a group that will attempt to "pull down" ( negate or diminish the importance of) any member who achieves success beyond the others, out of envy, conspiracy or competitive feelings. 

If you are looking for great poetry this is the book.
