Turtlely - Lincoln Park Zoo
A turtle met a turtle at
Crosspaths at Lincoln Park Zoo.
Who had the right of way and that
Became the question - what to do?
One turtle was small, one was big.
The big one stopped and blocked the way
To force the small to zag and zig.
The small decided two could play.
And so the small climbed on the shell
Of the big, and pounded across,
Leaving the big turtle to dwell
On being big does not mean boss.
And both would remember it all,
Cuz both do have turtle recall.
