I was a man

He came out of the cannon with limbs trailing and flailing about behind him
At some point he began to gain control again
He began to run across the sky with every joint disconnected and each limb stretched longer than humanly possible
He started glowing and burning brighter and brighter
He found his place in the sky
After a million years a star floated over to talk
It said, “I was a snapping turtle ”
He said, “I was a man”
