Tommy My Shy Talking Turtle....
Author: Terrie*


tommy my talking turtle
doesn't really talk
to anyone but me.
when others are around
he becomes a real clown
he smiles a lot ...
no-one has ever heard
tommy say one little word
he turns into a shy little thing
but.. boy can he sing
he sings every time
I put him in the bathtub

to wash his lovely shell
I promised him I wouldn't tell
he makes me laugh
when he splashes me
unlike his brother tiny tim
whom thought he could swim
he didn't eat all the soap
he didn't drink all the water
yet he too is sick in bed
with bubbles floating from his throat
this bothered me a lot
I didn't know what to do
until I went to wash my hair
and I had no more shampoo
now I know why my little tommy is sick in bed
and how those bubbles got there
but that didn't matter to me
because tommy is still singing to me..
