Maotou’s Animal World - Poem by Dongming Zhou

Maotou loves dog, cat, bird,
pet fish and chicken.
But he only has two small turtles,
one is green,
the other is green, too.
Matou always feeds them with tiny shrimp,
meat, vegetables, and other stuff he thinks
they will be good for the turtles.
The turtles have poor appetite.
The water tank always floats with food.

When the water turns cold in the winter,
The turtles become lazy and sleepy.
They are hibernating.
Maotou knows it.
Keep quite!
Maotou always turns down the TV,
and reminds everybody everyday.

Maotou has a plan,
he will send the turtle to the zoo
once they grow as big as giant sea turtle.
So he always check the turtle’s size,
although they still look like a dollar coin.
By the way,
Maotou is a little boy,
He is in grade one.
