Seymour the wayward Snail is a very troubled Snail
He lives on the wrong side of the street
His parents are worried that he is going off the rails
A more troubled Snail you will never meet
The trouble started when Seymour was a child
When he started to hang with the wrong crowd
He grew his hair and ran wild
He was all shell and very proud.
Seymours first foray to the wrong side of the law
Was when he ignored a No Trespassing sign in a
But he had a taste for Cabbage leaves and he wanted more
So he slide under the fence and ate up the whole yard.
The neighbour Mr Babbage didn’t like Seymour eating his
And Seymour the wayward Snail was caught and handed to
the Snail Police.
A Constable Escargot was in charge of Seymours case.
Seymour might have escaped but Snails are mighty slow
Seymour was ashamed that he couldn’t make haste.
Constable Escargot let Seymour off with a warning
And he was sent on his way
But Seymour didn’t understand how he was arrested in
the first place.
Sure he is slow but he was well hidden
No way had he been seen
It was like Mr Babbage had x ray vision.
Back at home Seymour is restless cause he has
been grounded without a mobile phone
His parents want Seymour to return to the straight
But Seymour sneaks out and goes on a bit of a roam
Cause he has a hankering for some juicy Marrow.
But once again Seymour is arrested at the scene of
But he doesn’t understand what gave him away?
He was sure he left no trace this time
His parents are distraught as they sit in the back
of the court
Watching as their son is sentenced by the Judge
Seymour has realised that his crimes have all come to
He sits there in a silent fury
The Judge gives him three years in a home for
Seymour is crushed and he goes back inside his shell
He was sure that he would make bail now he is on his
way to hell.
At the wayward home Seymour is subjected to taunts
He is called soft shell and told to harden up
He doesn’t understand the stuff that went down in the
He is tormented by the head Snail named Bruce
He is forced to do some nasty things the pain goes
on for hours and hours.
Finally the three year sentence has come to an end
Seymour has become a mere shell of himself
He didn’t break but he sure did bend
He realises that crime is no good for your health
Arriving home he apologises to his parents for all the
crap he has put them through
And then he decides to say sorry to his neighbour
Mr Babbage the keeper of the Cabbage
Mr Babbage isn’t at home but Seymour notices these
Green pellets scattered all over the yard
He cant resist and he eats the whole lot
What Seymour doesn’t know is that he just swallowed
a whole lot of Snail bait
His stomach starts to churn and he spews up his guts
Seymour has come to the end of the road there are no
ifs or buts
Now he is nothing but a body of slime
Seymour has run out of time
On his deathbed Seymour has one last question for
He wants to know why he was always getting caught
He was sure that he had always covered his tracks
His Mum said ‘Seymour love you are a Snail you always
leave a trail’ lol
Seymour gives a rueful smile says goodbye to his Mum
Then he just slips away
Seymour the wayward Snail has lived his final day.
