Snail Racing
They followed the snails across the wall,
One boy was thin the other tall,
Onto the backs of the snails they did put
Little chalk marks to show which was which.
Egging them on to go faster that day, they were playing snail racing again,
But the snails wanted to turn and go the other way,
Why would they not go and race the boy’s way?
Now one was in line again and going along his slime,
The other slowed down as if he didn’t have the time,
But at last the finish line came into view,
Oh look shouted one I am going to beat you,
Then a blackbird did swoop and took him away,
Oh shoosh said the boy it just isn’t my day, and left the garden to go off and play.
