The Tortoise

The tortoise sits like a bump on a log The people think his mind's in a fog. But really, he's seen more than you think. Enough to make you shock and rethink He's seen battles of war, Invasion and more. He's got a hundred years more Then you have been born. Seen presidents and news, Happy times and blue, Styles and songs, Rights and their wrongs. But now he sits in a cage Passing his days As children stare in awe, He waits for the call.
