Snapper the snail
Challenged me to a race on the trail
Down by Pollywog Pail.
He jumped at the gun
And his run was done.
It was the quickest that I’d ever won.
But he claimed he couldn’t be beat!
Said I took a step back to accomplish this feat.
He’s quick as a beetle, that cheat!
I’m fast as phlegm, bud!
I’ve the speed of a spud,
And once won uphill against mud.
I’m done with him and his cohorts.
No more racing those sorts.
Slugs are much better sports.
