Why Did the Turtle Cross the Road?

A painted, box turtle just like this one crossed the road in front of me recently.  Not the same one–this was written exactly two years ago.

To get to the other side–of course
That–and because it’s springtime
the mating season arrived
With a sudden hormone rush
Driving creatures crazy
Like some human counterparts
Days grow longer and warmer
So be kind–keep pets away
Watch nesting areas
While on the beach
Help turtles when you can
