A Poem About a Snail

Title – Snail

What is it like to slither on a carpet of slime

Carrying your caravan on your back?

What is it like to be hated by gardeners;

Prey to thrushes and slug pellets?

What is it like to come out on wet nights

And mate in pools of goo?

Do you think?

Do you believe?

Do you hope?

What is it like to be a snail?
