A Turtle's Turmoil

By , Eaton, CO

There once was a turtle of skin and bones,

and always it was forced to crawl alone,
for no other turtle in all the land
could think it to be its own kin when it was so incredibly thin
The turtle would eat pie every night,
and shove down some pudding with all its might,
but still it could not escape from its strife
The turtle tried doctors, physicians and diets,
but it was still left gaunt and seemingly lifeless
And so the turtle lived all alone,
a bag of bones
But still the turtle would eat pie every night,
and shove down some pudding with all its might,
and maybe a banana if it liked
And so the turtle was left to die,
till one day a confused soul came by and made the poor turtle into a tie
