The Turtle by Ogden Nash

Poetry Selections -- Jerz: Intro to Literary Study (EL150)

Once again another short poem. I thought long and hard about this and couldn't come up with any philosophical representation of turtles or reproduction. Instead, I think Nash is just noting how amazing nature is. We can't tell what sex a turtle is by looking at it because of it's shell and it's hard stomach. However, it's interesting how they are always reproducing.
