Whilst en-route to the molemeet yesterday (well done that Mole !) I sketched out the following which fellow filkers may wish to improve upon

Will you post a little faster ?
said a surfer to a snail
There's a dragon close behind us,and he's burning
up my tail
See how eagerly the newbies and the oldbies
all retreat
They are waiting in a channel
Will you come and join the meet
Will you, won't you, will you won't you
Will you join the meet
You can really have no notion how delightful
it will be
When they take us up and hug us with the newbies
and poor me
But the snail replied : Too fast, too fast
and gave a look elite
Said he thanked the surfer kindly
but would not join the meet
Would not, could not, would not, could not
would not join the meet.
What matters it how far we go
his scaly friend replied
There is another pub, you know
consult your web page guide.
The higher the pile of choccies, the
more there is to eat
Then turn not pale, beloved snail
but come and join the meet
Will you, won't you, ...etc etc
