The Tortoise and the Angel

---

The tortoise and the angel sat down to lunch

On lettuce and philosophy the did crunch

Said the Angel whilst sharing in a leafy munch

What do you think of the human bunch?

Slowly and thoughtfully the tortoise did scrunch

They’re in too muchof a hurry that is my hunch

And offered a glass of sloe and cabbage punch

The conversation went on through their brunch

---

Tortoise whilst selecting a leaf by sense of smell

Asked, why do they zoom about in a metal shell?

Angel a smirk did quell, quickest route to tolling bell

Tortoise, perplexed, scratching at his old grey cell

Their race from birth to death, his mind did dwell

What the angel had supposed did not bode well

How do you know they speed to heaven or hell?

Because my old friend, I am the angel that fell

---

The Angel of death picked up a stick of rocket

See this chap coming, he’s broken his sprocket

Chewing on a leaf he reached into his pocket

Took out the list of souls to collect docket

His brakes are bust, it’ll be impossible to stop it

He’s heading this way; I think you should hop it

The poor fella inside looked sure to cop it

What the angel got was a Tortoise shell locket

---

The moral of this story

Taking it slow and healthy eating is no guarantee of a long life

And if you’re going to speed about, make sure it’s in a metal shell
