Ode To The Beast – A Poem Before Toeing The Start Line

I think about you day and night
soon you will test my speed and might

up on the mountain, through the pain
shoulder to shoulder we will reign

sweat, blood and tears. we will shine.
less than a week. you will be mine.

P.S. You know you have a problem when you start addressing poetry to sporting events…
