Gotta watch out for those turtles...


Rufuz that day could not come,

The turtle did for him replace,

I in the back of course,

Rene on my lap, her smile, I bet you know the source…J


The turtle was a bit as well disgusting,

His legs crossed to avoid busting,

Of Rene he was quite too much lusting,

Move we did to visit a bear,

Much more was he, or so we thought, trusting…


Wish Rufuz could have come,

He would though have chased the dolphins,

Already they did speak of him with platitudes,

Dolphins are quite smart, sometimes though they throw about attitudes…

Beautiful picture, but Rufuz really would have fit much better than the old turtle. But, we can't have it all, can we? Looks like you had lots of fun!
