The Turtle Man
The Turtle Man - By Pat Gillem
There is a man down Kentucky way,
who catches wildlife, almost everyday.
He yells an Indian yell, when he catches a Snapper,
watching him jump into those ponds, is a real knee slapper.
They call him Turtle Man, that names got a ring,
when he walks out of a pond, he looks like the Swamp Thing!
He travels all over the country, saving critters,
who knows, he might even be on, face book or twitter.
He doesn't use traps, or even snares,
He catches them with his hands, to make it fair.
Someday, I would like to meet this man,
to talk about critters, and shake his hand.
If you knew me, you would understand,
my friends call me, The Reptile Man.
