The Tortoise, the Serpent, and the Peacock

Not too long in time ago
There was the queerest collection
Of animal friends —
A tortoise, a serpent, and a peacock three.

Tortoise said to the peacock:
“Let us all go for a journey,
But only if the serpent
Will lead us to his favorite place first.”

I love to rhyme, often sensually. I have to write, otherwise insanity. I leave my heart on paper. Feel free to feel my feels. I comment lovingly and completely.
