The Slow Truth

I’m sure you know the one about
The tortoise and the hare;
But what I think I ought to say
Is how it wasn’t fair.

The hare was fed a dodgy dish
That made him rather sick;
He really couldn’t run his race
Thanks to this cunning trick.

The tortoise cheated, that’s the truth!
He did it out of need
To show that slowness was the best:
More haste instead of speed.
