Old Tortoise And Evergreen Rabbit

Old Tortoise And Evergreen Rabbit short poem

Photo by hayashi28

Both of them are running
from Aesop’s days of simplicity
stamina and diligence
defeat contempt, insincerity.

Then again in 1934
Disney shot them at running track
Tortoise won as beauties failed to charm
Love of life brought Rabbit’s ill- setback

I find them still on race.
Powerful rabbit has a bright hope,
the tortoise will surely lose
and be guilty for taking dope.

Based on: Disney’s movie ‘The Tortoise And The Rabbit’ (1934)
