 Elsie`s Poetry



This is my new house I`ll have you know
And I can go in it rain, hail or snow,
I`m an affluent tortoise it has to be said
Anything is better than staying in the shed.

It makes for easy cleaning that`s for sure
It`s great as it has a removable floor,
It just slides in and out if I make a mess
But I won`t be cleaning it I have to impress.

I get in and out by a ramp made just for me
As I only have little legs as you can see,
I can laze in the doorway and bask in the sun
Until late in the evening when the day is done.

Please do not enter unless by request
I put this in at The General`s behest,
You must heed the sign that hangs on show
`The Private` sign is there just to let you know.

The General
