A tortoise met a panda.
A peculiar thing to say!
They found so much in common,
and they chatted every day.
Panda was a curious one,
but Tortoise was rather shy.
Panda asked a lot of questions,
And Tortoise would always reply.
Tortoise letting his guard down, thought,
“No need to hide in your shell!”
Taking a risk, Tortoise came out,
and things weren’t scary but swell!
Who’d ever seen something like it?
There’s such distance, but a shared stance.
Unexpected turn of events,
that might even turn to romance!
A tortoise met a panda,
What more is there to say?
Life is always funny,
in a providential way.
