Don't Take a Snail to the Moon


I once rode a snail to the moon.
The cloudy bright skies
started to hurt my poor eyes
And i guess i'll return not so soon.


      I think anticipation of National Poetry Month has me bringing out my inner child.  As Mark Twain once said, "Life is too important to be taken seriously."  This is in response to the prompt of Trips and Travels at Jingle Poetry.

Giant snail might just be the best way to travel. Just not to the moon.
