Adapting to Place

At first they thought I was a cop
Then they thought me Turtle
Tortiouse-like encased in my shell

I stayed that way frozen
But actually listening
for clues the whole time

How to uncase myself from this shell
I've cemented myself in

Actually when I least expected it
a leprechan tickled my green toes
he had hazmat gloves on
it turns out
which he turned me turnkey
inside out

He said elfishly
come Son
Sit on the all ready hardened case
above Guyer hot springs steam

Be more lizard-like
if only for a short span

You look like a cop
-shell or no
No one will disturb you
I'll keep your shell safe by my toe
