Never Underestimate the Speed of a Snail – #50PreciousWords Entry

Here’s my #50PreciousWords entry for 2021. I am very pleased to have been selected as one of the overall winners, coming in at #23 out of around 770 entries!

Snail says: “Let’s race! First one to that post wins!”  

Centipede says: “Seriously? One hundred legs versus… none?” 

Snail nods. 

Centipede sniggers. 

Snail slides. 

Centipede scurries. 

Snail glides. 

Centipede hurries. 

Snail…  

Rolls! 

“Weeeeeeeeeeee!”  

Safe in shell,  

Snail wins! 

Centipede sighs: “The slope! Legs alive, I forgot the slope!”
