The Turtle Quadrille
— Jean Gregory Evans
“Will you flit a little faster?” said the turtle to the fly.
“There’s a tortoise close behind us, and he’s treading in my trail.
See how eagerly the plodders and the anglers all advance!
They are waiting in the forest – will you come and join the dance?
—Will you, won’t you, will you, won’t you, will you join the dance?
—Will you, won’t you, will you, won’t you, won’t you join the dance?
Inspired by “The Lobster Quadrille” — Lewis Carroll which was inspired by Mary Howitt’s “The Spider and the Fly”
