Keeping Abreast on Conchology, or a Really Awful Boob?


Life Imitates Art is photo challenge for the week.

Snail

From early times some greatest art
Has stressed quite clearly upper part
Of ladies, showing very smart
Those bits that cover up the heart

It seems, as far as I can tell,
It will be found some creatures dwell
Which have a pointy kind of shell
That does the same thing rather well.
