Kids’ Poem: The Triumph of the Tortoise

Race Car on Track

The Triumph of the Tortoise
by Nessa Morris

As the rivals align for the race,
Somber tortoise prepares to give chase.
  Then, it’s “Ready. Set. GO!”
  And the hare bellows, “NO!”
His jalopy’s been glued into place.

open sesame, 25%; octopus, 50%; ogre, 25%Not much to say today.

Hope you enjoyed the poem.

Looks like “octopus” is the word for Friday. Have a great week!
