If I Were A Turtle - Poem by Ryan Eisele
If I were a Turtle
I wouldn't have much velocity
But I sure would have shell
I'd tried to buy a car with it
But they'd see it wasn't worth, to them, a penny
If I were a Turtle,
I'd be quite frank
When I wrote my autobiography
About the concept of how it feels
To be considered a sort of 'Beta-male' of Kingdom Animalia
If I were a Turtle......
I wonder if I'd die single and childless, or...
Would I fertilize some freshly planted eggs
Finishing this round in the cycle of life, but kicking off the next? ? ?
Or would I be immortalized on a nature film like the kind you might watch on VHS tape?
