World Travels of an Old Maid or The Reluctant Lesbian

    Harriet hatched into bright Galapagos sun.
    Darwin snatched the tortoise, England bound.  He hadn’t bothered checking under her shell.
    Shuffling from zoo to zoo as a Harry wasn’t easy.  Never mind the forced pairing with Lola.
    When a schoolboy whispered “Happy 175th birthday, Harriet,” she closed her eyes for good.
