Sea Turtle

Venture, hopeful tortoise!
Surmise thy routed destiny
Humanity doth applaud your plight
Sun-kissed sapiens cede their cherished sunning spots
An anniversary! Oh, omniscient summoning!
Age-old wisdom maps the journey
Soon led astray by new-age fluorescence
Traversing the desert of yellow and black
Shells suddenly brittle beneath the weight of the century
Beware, onlookers!
Guide ye, the wary traveller
Harbor thy sacred dinosaur,
Lest she resort to the nesting ground above
And leave no print behind but a sea rendered lifeless.
