Foolish Turtle (Poem 330)

Foolish turtle,
   walking your solemn course
   to nowhere 
Peering skeptic,
   the process pleases 
   you best
Some swift, grinning tart
   drifting in your wake
   may try to pass, but 
You, puffed up and solemn,
   forgive the interlopers 
   in your quest 
   for a pickled beet and 
   a perfectly uneventful day
