Snail survival stratagem

The snail
with its stalked eye
spied a boot
which was walking by.

“Oh no,” he thought (or she),
“this big loud thing
is bound to bring
death or misery!

Down with my eyes!
What I can’t see
will never do
any harm to me.”

Narrow escape
and lesson learned:
If you close your eyes
you won’t get burned!
