The Turtle and the Fry

The Turtle and the Fry

‘Tell me, what’s the biggest

piece of advice you can give,

on the way of things,

of the way I should live?’

Said the fry to the turtle.

The turtle paused,

in deep thought.

Then gave the answer

which the young fry sought.

‘Nothing is forever.

That is the way of the world.’

Then he swam away, towards the reef.

‘Too true,’ thought the fry,

in utter relief

that the question had an answer.

He swam North

and turned into a fish.
