Missed it by *that*much
'Missed it by *that*much'
is what I am told when I 'run '
*Barry Bones and *Karma Lee
the fastest of legs ,with my fingers.
I run, I swipe ,I slide,I somersault
still 'nom nom leathery', the sharp toothed monsters
eat my bones as a tasty treat.
No idol I do get,my running reflexes
chased away by demonic monkeys.
A feeble under 50 meters and skinny 9 points
hoard as the score my sweat earns...
I say, I quit ,to my ten year old
and sneak back to the tab track
when she' s not around.
Insult to injury ,she pokes at my scary scores
mmphh, I really quit ....
(till she snuggles deep in her bed-..s shh)
...and this is how I ''Temple Run',for all I know,
in my daughter's virtual run track!!
**I refer to playing Temple Run ,a virtual adventure game ,for winning an idol from a temple . * Barry Bones, and* Karma Lee, are fast running explorers. ..Demons chase the explorers who get inside the temple,so you have to run real fast. I run like a kid myself..Enjoy..
