The Turtle Alice

A little fun, albeit badly written, poetry for your hot Tuesday. And, I changed the color of the blog background. I needed a change and thought it easier than painting my living room.

We had a turtle
come into our lives.
We named her Alice.
indeed she was wise

Oh no, Alice thought
what have I done
I've gotten myself caught
I can't even run.

we released her to
the wetlands behind
our house today
don't you think this was kind?

She is now receiving
more attention than Crys.
Chrystalena Tulip,
our guinea pig

has suffered a lack
of love and touch
when she proved to us
her preference for not much

Now Alice is lost.
She took my advice.
To flee the hands of young children
And run like mice!
