If you don’t know the song, the last panel must make it look as if I’ve lost my mind.
Panel three references an old saying, “The ox is slow, but the earth is patient.” I believed it to be an ancient Buddhist proverb. Doing a little (very little) internet research leads me to believe it may have been written for the Tom Selleck movie High Road to China. Makes me feel better about having misremembered it as referring to multiple oxen instead of one ox, and for the fact that I originally read it in a Batman comic.
