Prehistoric times strolled through the way
When a dinosaur looking turtle
Made an appearance
In a neighbor’s driveway.
My dog wasn’t sure
About the possibility of play,
But the snapping turtle was sure
He was having none of us today.
He seemed to flex his shell,
A sign of power to instill fear,
Which made my dog
Kind of turn his head, almost laughing.
We watched the snapper
Waddle into the bushes.
Then we finished our walk
Leaving Barney to his own devices.
