A near-to-death snail humbly stated:
Had I lived my life accelerated
I might still be alive to see all hated
gastronones permanently eradicated.
Then gasping, coughing, he hesitated,
his final words barely articulated
but by another clearly interpretated:
“Live life slow and uncomplicated,
the way my parents had me educated,
even as our wise Maker mandated.”
With that he peacefully terminated,
grateful to have died as born – unmarinated.
