I downloaded a rather sizable patch for a game, during which the download speed stuttered and leaped in an unforeseeable manner. It reminded me of a race.
There goes the signal and the race is on!
The contestants are away, vanished, gone!
#1 takes the lead with gigantic leaps
#3 is advancing in graceful sweeps.
#2 left stuttering behind in the dust,
#4 still at the start line, thinking, nonplussed.
#1 cruises on, victory secure
The only thing left now is to ensure-
At the start line, a flash of light!
#4 disappeared, completely out of sight!
The crowd goes crazy!? Where is #4?
At the finish line already? Hear them roar!
The download contest is done, winner: #4!
Ladies and gentlemen, we have a new high score!
