A wise turtle

The turtle was over a hundred years old.

 

You could count the rings on its shell.

 

It had avoided death by fisherman many times

 

It was sought after for its knowledge.

 

It had history which was vast.

 

Yet it had one regret.

 

Man the Polluter, the spoiler of the seas had not learned the lesson.

 

Purity was needed.

 

No more dumping in the ocean.

 

No more for the turtle said so.

It wanted its future generations to live as it had,

 

Pollution free.
