A drabble of 100 words on ‘Race’:
The tortoise had lost again.
The hare’s coach proudly inquired: ‘Can a donkey ever become a horse?’
The tortoise’s coach resigned in disgust.
The experts in their post-race analysis concluded the outcome could never be otherwise. The long hind-legs conferred on the hare a clear winning advantage of long leaps and bounds.
The wise man observed: ‘Depends how long the race is. You don’t win a race of 100 paces but you might with 10000. No point in running to lose. Pick yours to win.’
‘And you’ll see more races in your time than a score of them taken together.’
This is in response to a weekly drabble challenge hosted by http://thewriteaholicblog.wordpress.com/.
