Fun run

11 May

Warm sun above
Tarmac below…

Off we go’d

Down the road
Roared on by the crow-d
Bobbing along

No chatter or song
Passed the tongue

Of the forward-faced throng

While banners and boards

Were waved by the hoards
Whose fat-faced wards

Sticky sweets gnawed

Up hill

Downhill

Running still

Feeling ill

Hot sun above

Hard road below

How far is there left to go?
I don’t know.

    I like how you made me rhyme crowd with road in my head. It almost reads like a nursery rhyme-y. Blimey
