Tortoise

Man screams and rages, plunders, preys

On others, and sets himself a frenetic pace.

A tortoise just ambles on, in his carapace,

Savouring the quiet life with grace

Thouh he evolved earlier, he shows no trace

Of trying to overrun the earth, colonise space;

I think it may be his long range plan

To wait out the brief flash in the pan,

That is the life of modern man,

Then he can show his true worth,

Inherit, inhabit, make sustainable the earth;

So , for now, he retreats into the  haven of his shell

While man tries his best to raise all kinds of hell!
