Turtle Tat

Of a turtle on his back
Bri stopped in at the Tattoo Shack
The tatteur misunderstood
Didn't think that he could.

He was just a  hack
And lacked the knack
For painting a turtle on a back
And since he wore a thick wool hood
Couldn't hear as well as he should.

Without the least amount of  flack
He gave Bri a thunderous whack
Put all but his face in the back of the Mack
 And truly believed what he did was swell
As he glued Bri's face to a turtle shell.

The turtle dove deep into the blue
With only Bri's face as his crew
Who knew? Maybe a few
That the man who wanted a turtle tat
Would become one just like that!


  1. Do you show your work? You should be in a gallery with this kind of work. The style seems perfect for the time....and I love your accompanying poetry!

  2. Thank you KD. I show my work at the Good News Gallery, Woodbury, Ct. and Eric Landgraf, NYC. I have two books of my art and poetry available, Depingo Ergo Sum and The Unibrow. Please contact me if you would like to purchase one.

  3. The Bri-back Turtell
    Looks really swell.

  4. Love it! Harrison does too. Now we have the whole family.

  5. Now how many times did your mother tell you, turtles with paintings and decals on their backs is not a good idea for them?
    Without the least amount of flack...I hope---

  6. Susan, Glad I got to meet you. Your art is so cool. Your sense of humor really shows through.
