The World According To Vicky #poem #tortoise

If you live with a tortoise

It’s not likely to improve your poise

Or lessen any ambient noise.

But equally you’ll never cuss

Or jump about or make a fuss

Living with a tortuss…

About TanGental

My name is Geoff Le Pard. Once I was a lawyer; now I am a writer. I've published several books: a four book series following Harry Spittle as he grows from hapless student to hapless partner in a London law firm; four others in different genres; a book of poetry; four anthologies of short fiction; and a memoir of my mother. I have several more in the pipeline. I have been blogging regularly since 2014, on topic as diverse as: poetry based on famous poems; memories from my life; my garden; my dog; a whole variety of short fiction; my attempts at baking and food; travel and the consequent disasters; theatre, film and book reviews; and the occasional thought piece. Mostly it is whatever takes my fancy. I avoid politics, mostly, and religion, always. I don't mean to upset anyone but if I do, well, sorry and I suggest you go elsewhere. These are my thoughts and no one else is to blame. If you want to nab anything I post, please acknowledge where it came from.

    I loved our tortoise, but sadly he/she died of pneumonia. That was awful to deal with. But the kids buried her in the back yard(they were 4 and 5 at the time.) In the spring they came in and announced she had gone to Heaven. When asked how they knew they confidently replied “We dug her up and she was gone!” Loved guest grandmothering your tortoise.

    They are the most modest pets I could imagine. Outside all day, no mess, just running around, searching warm and sunny places, eating, sleeping… and they are happy!
