The Shell

The Shell
Fill ‘er up there
Get a lotto ticket
Buy some oil or pick up a pack
Clear your mind, meet a friend
Get your car washed
Exercise the dog to and back
Shop inside for a snack
Find some change at

The Shell

What creature’s home?
This refined protection
From current, trench and predator
Once palace to a tiny visitor
Arrives as a perfect relic
Surmounting sea and sand
Did its mate fare
So well
