The turtle on the sand
Has seen it all before
And still he’s none the wiser;

Apathetic waves
Dappled by
Those hum drum sun beams,

Wafting sullen palm trees,
All salty, sour and clueless,

The never changing rock pools
And the never ending skies.

He’s never been surprised
And he’s been there
Quite awhile,

Even cameramen don’t faze him
But don’t expect a smile.
