It's the day of the Cancer Charity Race
I will start slow, I don’t have the pace
of the athletes, that train day in and day out
with personal trainers, that helps, no doubt
I would, if I had the money to spare
except, time to train seems to disappear, somwhere
never to be found again, so I will start at a trot
hoping, I wont miss that 5 hour slot
that is the maximum I have energy for
unless, I drink the booster drinks, or more
likely an intravenous, would be great
having energy on tap, not to be last crossing the gate.
