ONCE A RUNNER
ONCE A RUNNER
He was once a track star
Ran as fast as the wind
He would run near and far
His title he would defend
Once ran from Simi to Malibu
He had plenty of endurance
Over mountains this is true
Took a friend for assurance.
As he got much, much older
With five children to feed
Other pressures to shoulder
He adopted his own creed.
Home every night before six
No time to run but games to play
Broken bikes and hearts to fix
Always lots of allowances to pay.
Now that the track star is older
More time to get back into shape
A whole lot less to shoulder
He now wears supermanís cape!
