a limerick by Wayne Wysocki
The tortoise and hare had a race
But the rabbit came in second place
So the notion that speed
Makes the win guaranteed
Just isn't always the case.
For an exotic meal I pursued,
Not expecting one that did include,
Some baked tortoise tails
Amongst a plate of snails...
But I think I’ll just stick to fast food.
Limerick: Once Lucy met Heidelberg Man
for Nelson Mandela
Once Lucy met Heidelberg Man
Then Neanderthal and Peking Man
Tortoise said to the Turtle:
“Where’s your doggone girdle!”
“What a disgrace to my race,” said Bushman!

A bunny can hop, jump, and leap
And sit up straight whilst fast asleep
A tortoise must climb
One step at a time
Spurred on by the Roadrunner's beep
Michelle introduced us to Morris
Most prolific thesaurus tortoise
Her wording profuse
Just like DrSeuss
She most certainly didn't bore us
Escort Us To a Tortoise
While I was riding around on a tortoise,
Had suffered from case of rigor mortis;
Thought was best;
Was hard to digest;
We named first child Unum EPluribus.
Dug own grave with hands being shortest.
