Reflecting On The Internet Of The 1990s!

Listen up everyone i have a story to tell/ About 4 heroes, who happen to be in a half shell/ Their names for short are Leo, Mikey, Donny, and Raphael/ Turtles that are teenage mutants from the sewers that smell/ We met up with April O’ Neil who reported that crime/ Is sharply increasing, becauseContinue reading “TMNT Poem- The Tale Of 4 Heroes In A Half Shell”
