Fumbling Fable


The tortoise says go slow and steady.
Fox says use your head, your wit.

Ant says hard work is the deal,
Hare says just get on with it.

Lion says, befriend a mouse.
Wolf says don a sheep.

Goose says be patient, now.
Ass says, get some sleep.

In a puddle of confuzzlement,
I don’t know quite what to do.

The moral of the story?
Don’t ask questions at the zoo.


PAD, day 22
