As The Final Hill Comes into View

There was a knock at the door,
It was the postman,
He handed me an invitation
To referee a race,

Well, I was so excited of course I accepted ,
It was a race between the chicken and the egg

Well, not long after the letter arrived,
It was the day of the race, I was so excited
The sun was shining and the
atmosphere was splendid

The two contestants waited at the line
The whistle blew and they were off
They passed the first tree, with ease

The egg “fair enough was a little slow”
All of a sudden I felt a tap on my shoulder
I couldn’t believe it,
It was only the hare and the tortoise

Wanting to know why I didn’t referee their great race?
Well, I tell you I did frown

As the last hill comes into view
I hear the gasps from the crowd,

I turned back to look

The chicken and the egg
Had both passed the finish line

The embarrassing thing for me is that
I didn’t see which one came first.
