The Real Deal

My way is better than yours
Said the tortoise to the hare
You may be faster and stronger then I
But I will still beat you there

The hare laughed a thunderous roar
He said not a chance you will win
Then he bet all he had including his home
Because He was so sure within

We all know the outcome that day
The hare’s supercilious way
Cost him all that he had because of his pride
Now he doesn’t know what to say

I’ve been there and know how he feels
Pride can make all of us reel
So never allow your pride to rise up
Just try to be the real deal
