The marathon runner


Pounding away on the ground with my feet
Pushing on forward counting the beat
Muscles are strained head full of thought
Being chased by tiredness don’t want to get caught
Running on proudly giving a show
Knowing there are still seven miles to go
Think of the sponsorship that I’ve now been paid
And how it will provide humanitarian aid
Grab water from the station refreshing and clear
Knowing that the endof the marathon is near
Shoulders are stretched legs are in pain
I’m telling myselfI won’t do this again
But then againI have been here before
And this is the answer I’ll do just one more.
