Turtle Turmoil

Turtle Turmoil

A Chapter by Dave Brown



I heard the turtle

Frustrating declare

That he cannot

Access any chair

And is looking

At how to repair

His very poor access

To that of rare air


In an effort

To ascend him aloof

He was offered a volume

Of gin and vermouth

However though

It may sound just a spoof

This potent brew had him

Burst through the roof


It was not the ascent

At all being a dud

It was the decent

Producing a pain filled thud

Resulting in a deflated desire

Of becoming a rare air stud

Or at least if ending up again higher

Landing in much thicker mud

This is exactly why I've never been much of a drinker! I typically blast off. I clicked on this link, thinking I might find proof of your turtle sensitivity, but here you are blowing up turtles, frogs, & lizards like a devious ten-year-old! *wink! wink!* Fondly, Margie

I've never done a frog a disservice
Even lizards are safe
This is funny. A drunken turtle going through the roof. I think many times in life we feel a bit like this turtle being launched in direction not of our choosing
