Turtle Trouble - Day 10

When the boy down the street
Suggested our pond needed
A few small frogs, we thought, "Great!
A wonderful addition
To our turtle habitat!"
So he ran to get the frogs.

In a flash, he brought some back;
The cutest amphibians 
You can imagine, hopping
About, happy go lucky...
The trouble was, the turtles
Only thought of lunch.

Today's prompt was:  "______ Trouble". This is a sad. but true story. I honestly had no idea the turtles would actually eat the frogs. I literally gasped in horror when I saw it happen. I love my turtles, but...that was just not right.
