Marathon Man

Marathon Man

By jfarrell

 

(classic of a film, but this ain’t related to that….

 Sorry. Still, a classic film)

 

I left for work 5am yesterday;

Got back 1am today;

16 hour waiting/running shift;

And long, cold (bloody freezing) wait for bus.

 

And I’m scared to sleep;

Gotta leave for work in a few hours;

If I went to bed now,

I dunno if I’d hear my alarm clocks ( all three of them.)

 

So….

HELLO WORLD ;-)

Writing something just made more sense

Than sitting there moaning about how tired I was.

 

I can’t run like Dustin Hoffman, or Forrest Gump;

(Run, Forrest, run….;   )

But, I can drink gallons of coffee, chew caffeine pills like Popeye

And finish my marathon with my eyes held open with matchsticks ;-)

 

Have a really fantastic day Everybody ;-)

duracell bunny wags its tail, scared to stop in case it falls asleep and can't wake up, hehe
