Another Race

Heart pounding
Chest heaving
Feet pumping
Breath leaving

Not so nice as this…

Still sitting
Still sitting
On no pallid bust of Pallas
That allegiance long forsworn
Chasing after Mammon
Though shoes and feet are worn
Clutching after castoffs
Grabbing them up though forlorn
Eating of them, greedy
Of all dignity long shorn
But stopping is the other choice
And stopping earns all scorn

Like how I write? Get in touch; I can write for you!
