    I'm off to the swamp to watch the turtles. Your poetry is off to my favorite poets list.

    LOL, thank you for your wonderful comment. I don't think that you will have to go as far as the swamp. They have videos on U-tube. On one the poor turtle lost his grip and is lying helplessly on his back. Hilarious. I'm a sucker for animal slapstick.

    It can be an upside down business if the male loses his grip. Which does happen and is very funny.

    If you get a chance check out the book "Under Water with Ogden Nash" I love that book.

    Thank you. You could still change the end line. Or just add out cold at the end. I think it would be hilarious.
