The Terrible Tale of Timothy the Turtle
Timothy the turtle was terribly timid
Timothy the turtle was terribly timid,
Tucking into his shell at the slightest touch.
Trembling and trembling, Timothy tottered,
Treading cautiously through the tangled thicket.
Trapped in his thoughts, Timothy teetered,
Thinking of the terror that lay ahead.
The towering trees twisted and turned,
Thickening the darkness with their twisted trunks.
Tremors shook Timothy's tiny frame,
Thrusting him further into his shell.
Trailing behind, a terrifying tail,
Teased him with its tantalizing tickle.
Terror gripped Timothy, tainting his thoughts,
Tormenting him with terrible terrors.
Trembling and trembling, he tried to talk,
But his tongue tangled, trapping his words.
Timothy the turtle trembled and shook,
Trapped in a terrifying tale.
But with time, Timothy toughened up,
Taking on the trials that lay ahead.
