Who Saved The Tortoise? - Poem by Gangadharan nair Pulingat..

A big tortoise, while it was going
Saw by the gentleman going to workplace
A man who likes tortoise more
Not for love but to kill for food
The delicacy he found earlier fine
And caught the poor one with lot of hopes
But going to workplace a bottleneck he thought
And tricked the one the tortoise he caught
Put upside down and a heavy stone in top
The poor one cried in loud in its own little noise
But who to care, a poor tortoise
That too when it is in danger hell
A passer nearby passed in haste
While seen the plight opined a little
Poor the tortoise hoped for a help
Who cares the little tortoise for life
A fox came near the tortoise and smelled
But failed his attempts to remove the stone
Not to save the little one in danger
But his own food in the tortoise he saw
Failing his attempt flew from the site
The tortoise cried in loud in its own little noise
There came a little child way back to home
A good school the child was studying
Where he had learnt the lessons of kindness
And as well as the lessons of conservation
He took some pain to lift the stone
And saved the tortoise which was so tired
Seeing the suffering the little one offered
A few drops of water in its mouth
From the little water bottle the child carried
And the tortoise told thanks to the child
And flew to its own habitat to save its life.
