An Ode to George and Phoenix

African Spurred Tortoises

(Geochelone sulcata)

Welcome, welcome

spacedear George and Phoenix,

Two reptilian tortoises,

spacefrom the period we call Mesozoics...

As babies so tiny

spacebarely a few ounces in weight,

In ten years,

space230 pounds such a magnificent state...
