Step Faster, Please
Of all most aggravating things,
If you are hot in haste,
Is to have a man in front of you
With half a day to waste.
There is this one thing that justifies
The man in the foremost place:
The fact that he is the man in front,
The leader of the race.
But, for Heaven’s sake, if you are ahead,
Don’t dawdle at your ease!
You set the pace for the man behind;
Step faster, please!
“Sara’s stunning, heartbreaking, and relevant illustrations help to tell a difficult, haunting story. I will return to the story, as I do with all those stories I love, again and again.”
