We’ve all heard the tale of the tortoise and rabbit,
that rabbit that raced all the time out of habit,
who set out to prove that speed was the way
shaving off seconds of time everyday.
‘Til a slow moving tortoise came and ruined it all,
slowly plodding away while rabbit napped on the mall.
Because slow and steady wins the race,
and that tortoise kept a slow steady pace.
He taught us all a thing or two.
Maybe it’s not winning or losing that’s important,
but how you do.

Words I had to use: shaving, rabbit, slowly.
