Tiny Turtle For dVerse~Poets Pub


Tiny turtle in my hand
How did you arrive here
By accident 
Or man?
Tiny now too small to bite
You will grow
 Into a frightful sight.
The question remains
How came you here?
I know the answer...
From my sweet dear
Hubby's main goal
Is to make me scream
It's just a game
He's not mean
He laughs now but
I'm quite the sneak
I'll release this baby 
To the creek.

One thing we know
And tell
Around here
Paybacks are hell.

I have confronted a snapper, and I ran. Good revenge to take!

Fun it is when we can enjoy the others playfulness!

Ooh, I hope it ain't your toes he bites some day when you are walking that creek!

Saucy Kodz said...

He won't be snapping at your bare toes, cause he'll remember you were the one to free him. Cute poem and cute little snapper :)
