Turtle Stew

A seashore near the ocean where

The breakers scattered foam,

A turtle dwelt with two small friends—

The sandy beach their home.

Benevolence”—their motto,

Marine Society

Of turtle, clam, and hermit crab—

Companions by the sea.

The turtle’s shell – beguiling—

Chartreuse with flecks of puce,

But flawed—a leak predicament—

Her shell, a trifle loose.

Her faulty home let in a draft
