PADIDDLE AND SKEDADDLE

Skedaddle whistles
To move along Padiddle
Who cannot decipher
The Hurry-Up Riddle

of faster, quicker,
sooner, more,
of pick up your feet
and get out the door.

When Skedaddle says
Hurry!
Padiddle says
Don’t worry.

If Padiddle wonders,
Why rush?
Skedaddle says,
Hush!

When Skedaddle asks
How should we go?
Padiddle answers,
Definitely Slow.

If Padiddle won’t
move fast
Skedaddle turns
Aghast.

If they were horses
Skedaddle’d be at the battle
while Padiddle lagged back
fixing his saddle.

The Airship Padiddle
would relax at the gate
while Skedaddle soared off
from the chance to be late.

Though their names sound alike
Padiddle
Skedaddle
they work no more the same
than a fiddle and rattle.
