I am so Forlorn

22 Apr

giant snail

I am so Forlorn

Rich slug, poor slug, fat slug, thin,

I am a slug that just cannot fit in,

To categorising, following the norm,

I was born with a shell; I am so forlorn!

*

Do not be upset, said a stranger to me,

Look at me, she said. Pray tell what you see,

I see a slug with a shell, but how can that be?

I am a snail, she replied, and so are you – can you see?

Yes, I replied, this is true – I can see!

The what and the wherefore are included, said she,

Come slime down the path; forget slugs and their ways,

Snails on life’s journey, together each day.
