Apologies for the Apologue

So the tortoise and the ant
Got around to conversing
About their fine victories,

Engaging in some modest
Boasting, naturally. The ant
Expressed belief in hard work.

The tortoise expressed a faith
In staying the course. Dogged
As does it, they each agreed,

Although both secretly thought
They had the better idea
On how best to persevere.

As they chatted and enjoyed
The morning sun by the pond,
Grasshoppers stridulated

Their relentless choruses,
Hares mated to make more hares,
Fables spawned more victories.
