None For Me, Thank You

I know a crafty old reptilian Who answers to the name of Jillian. She has often been around the loop Without simmering in turtle soup. Whenever she feels the need to roam She travels in her mobile home. She lives now at the local zoo And doesn't mind that she's on view. Each Thursday she is the headlined feature. After seeing this amazing creature I don't think anyone would stoop To order a bowl of turtle soup. Took 9th place in Turtle Soup contest

This is real cute Joyce. Best of luck in the contest with it. I just couldn't get started on this contest. I love turtles too much I guess. They are such beautiful creatures. Aloha, Connie
