Sunday Runners

Joggers stagger up and down the steep streets,
Pounding the pavement with their lagging feet,
Some huff and puff, and some chant their mantras;
Some fly by in silence whilst other are ‘panters’,
Some dawdle as they warble their favourite ditties,
And some rasp broken bars of flitting melodies,
Some hum while they run, and others whistle,
Some spit, some fart, some gasp and some grizzle;
In this guise they provide a wide variety
of sounds that abound round the town in a frenzy,
Yet despite this tumult, the result is the same;
They’re all running to nowhere with nothing to gain.

I love all kinds of music, though hard house in particular - as everything in life is better when it's hard... I hope you enjoy my musings and thank you for reading! I can also be found on
