The Shells

The cracked Shells has fallen off
From backs of turtles and snails,
And the creatures are happy
“No more heavy loads to carry
No more ugly outward looks”
All these and more they sang.

But Shell couldn’t understand
Why they all spoke so ill of her
The crystals had turned opaque
Until the tortoises snapped back
To reality, and felt true gravity,
Then they understood her values.
