As a turtle does run
As a slug slides slow
As my sister in the bathroom
When I really have to go

As molasses in winter
As a glacier does flow
As my grandma in traffic
As a sloth with three toes

As looking for Winter
As December so slow
When I'm waiting for Christmas
Does the clock seem to go.

Turtle Time

This poem had a different ending that would have been appropriate if the kids were in school...

... so I changed it to fit with the Christmas season.
