A Flock of Flying Turtles

Poetry By: lehi girl72509

It has always been a joke with my friends and myself to say "oh look there's a flock of flying turtles!!!' and one of my friends would invariably look to see the sight. So here is a poem about the flock of flying turtles!!!

A flock of flying turtles!
They might say to you
When they want to distract you
From what is really true

You turn around in amazement
Expecting to actually find
The flock of turtles! the flock of turtles!
It's hanging in your mind

But when you turn around
In complete shock you find
There are no turtles, there are no turtles
It was just a lie

They say that you are gullible
Your friends they say to you
Turtles don't fly, you know its a lie
It's sad, but maybe true

They said that turtles were there!
Even though turtles can't fly
They dissapeared! They dissapeared!
Those turtles magically go bye

Turtles in the air
You know it cannot be
This make-believe tale, its a very fun sale
Turtles in the air isn't just make believe

Even though the turtles
Might not have been there
You still will believe, turtles could be
Flying through the air

Turtles in the air
They'll always say to you
Though turtles can't fly, you will always try
To see them, say they flew

For turtles may be slow
And maybe so are you
But flying through the air, a miracle to spare
They're fast, flying true

You know this little story
Might not really be true
But isn't it fun, what we've begun
With turtles flying behind you.
