    Unlike birds of a feather, who flock together,
    tortoise gatherings are not a pleasure.
    They admit to always being spurned,
    and never seem to be that concerned.
    Surly and distant, and not easy to please,
    they live alone under the trees.

    Perhaps they have low self-esteem?
    Never gracing the covers of magazines!

    Slowly and carefully they dawdle along,
    not even a whistle or a silly song.
    Just a squeaky sound when they see a mate,
    almost sprinting in a wobbly gait.
    In lonesome pods, without a care,
    antisocial reptiles, in protective gear.
    Elusive hulks in patterned shells,
    they don’t know each other very well!

    Me thinks, inside they’re just squishy and soft,
    unaccustomed,
    to being mocked!

    I'm sure they would not like to know
    How you have brought them to your show
    And made us all take careful note
    Of their uncaring, how remote
    They so prefer to be, and thus
    Make perfect idiots of us
    Who simply cannot comprehend
    That they don't wish to be our friend.

    I added the slide deck for my upcoming presentation at the Turtle and Tortoise Preservation Group's 2018 conference at my web-page www.KapidoloFarms.com as a blog post for this date, 8 November 2018.

    Why not just put it here? I'm looking to build traffic.

    What? When I looked at it I saw nothing but the Title. I clicked on the title and the same page comes up.
