The Snail Teaches

Slow, snail! Ah! its humility
It advanced and now be teaching;
I jealous of its progress
Said how can be
How can be, this snail
Is slow, let me compete
A run with it
Though in my age.
Ah! the snail teaches!
How many come from behind
And I found them in front
And would not reach them!
I am in this state, albeit,
Perhaps a few
Tread this hot charcoal.
Make me a martyr - at this
Stage - what more remains?
