Turning turtle

The death of a rare Yangtze turtle/

Ensures that the species will hurtle/

Towards its demise/

If all three are guys,/

So let’s hope one’s female (and fertile*).///

*North American pronunciation, of course – but not much rhymes with turtle. I guess that’s why Siouxsie and the Banshees rhymed it with ‘purple’ in ‘Christine’.
