Aesop writes about an unlikely pair
A race betwixt a turtle and a hare
While the hare fiddled around
The wily turtle gained ground
Resulting in the hare losing the dare

Once Lucy met Heidelberg Man
Then Neanderthal and Peking Man
Tortoise said to the Turtle:
“Where’s your doggone girdle!”
“What a disgrace to my race,” said Bushman!

There once was a turtle named Myrtle
Stuck in a plastic ring girdle
It altered her mass
Into an hourglass
Leaving her deformed and infertile.
Pond Across The Road
How brazen the turtle called painted!
His friends watched in horror! then feinted!
Zag that way! Zig here!
Missed the truck that hauls beer!
A miracle! they called him! then sainted!
I was fishing for trout
when a turtle came about,
He grabbed the worm from the hook,
Ddnt even take a second look.
I cussed at him you fool id shout.
They all said it was absurd
To go and invent a word
I do it all the time
In cause of a rhyme
And now my secret is shared.
There was a Mock Turtle called Myrtle
Who once fell off a cliff and got hurtle
She said it was hell
With a cracked shell
‘Cos the water leaked in with a spurtle.
A turtle in a dirty pond
Was picked up by a dirty blonde
Trump said that the water
Was gonna get hotter
Unless she squirts his magic wand
Across a roadside that's fertile
Came this reptile and a hurdle
As he hid in his shell
A nice driver did yell
Just cross the road little turtle
Moving at the pace of a turtle
pick up the pace there is no hurdle!
Kindly move over
can't go any slower;
If I hop past you don't startle.
Found out I was colorblind, it came right out of the purple
Maybe a bit off color, that's a color of a different turtle
How weird is this cat
Something's got detached
In the dictionary the definition of me says fertile!
Fertile Turtle On Beach Named Myrtle
We finally found out she had been fertile;
And marooned on a beach named Myrtle;
A big boil;
Each egg did turn out to be a tiny turtle.
Hunk'a hunk'a burning love
The hunkiest love all else above
Got help from Mo
My friend from Big'O'
Also help from those loving turtle doves
What kind of faerie is it? She asked
Pretty one turtle said as he basked.
We watched her awhile.
She had a great smile.
Drunk one, one said, as she replenished her flask.
A cat and a turtle, a pair
Found love in the warm summer air.
But it's not evolution,
Just a fanciful solution,
For a fish to be born, that's quite rare!
