Jackie the Red-Eared Slider

Jackie the red-eared slider
Had a very flattened shell
We think her former owners
Didn’t know to feed her well

All of her tank companions
Little snails and little fish
Hoped that she wouldn’t eat them
Deciding they’re a tasty dish

Then one day this turtle girl
Scored her great escape
Out and down and on the floor
Nearly made it out the door

Now Jackie’s bubbling filter
Is moved to where she cannot climb
Jackie the red-eared slider
Swimming with us all…the…time!
