     Old González, who feeds on grass

     and collects fag-ends under the tables.

     They say, that he once ate tortoise

     to become immune from the coming

     epidemic. (Americans throw him lettuce

     leafs now!) Since that time tortoise have

     never left him. González crawls on the ground

     in silence. Filthy and popular as no other

     tortoise in the vicinity.
