The Killer Turtle*

While fishing at a sportsman’s lake
to which we belonged in Kentucky
thirty-five years ago, my son and I
discovered a huge snapping turtle,
a prehistoric beast, lurking in the
swampy creek that fed the lake.
We named it the “Killer Turtle.”
Little did we know at the time that
the Killer Turtle was Mitch McConnell
in town on a fund raising campaign trip.

*A nickname for the Majority Leader of the U.S. Senate who is
spearheading the Republican driven senate health care bill, which,
if passed, it is estimated would be responsible for the unnecessary
death of tens of thousands of US citizens per year according to
various sources.
