Running Amok

Rambling and Scrambling

I really hate to eat and run,
But that is how it’s often done.
I gobble snacks
Then race the tracks,
So that I will not weigh a ton.

I lace my shoes and set my clock
To plod my way around the block.
But chuckle not,
And no cheap shot,
Unless you plan to walk the talk.
