On snails

entry picture

A snail is a complex thing

when going out

its always in


It drags around its house of shell

so doesn't need

a door or bell


Its like some people I suppose

but unlike them

its burden shows

Thanks Ray,

my Grandmother used to salt slugs and snails, pretty cruel in my book.

Thanks for reading and comments, hope you get your IT sorted soon.

witty, wistful and nicely turned out David. A segment of truth in a nutshell. Very appealing and refreshing.
I put slug pellets once onto a pot and after seeing the destruction of snails I was ashamed and disgusted; the design of these creatures is a revelation of spiral physics.
