Commonly considered as a running game,
It is quite an accomplishment
And could earn you some fame,
The term itself
Is used under all kind of circumstances,
Don’t you remember those 24-hour marathon dances?
Performing the Twist, Watusi and Swim,
That was a long time ago
Your memory might be dim.
I have one daughter
She is a marathonic athlete,
I doubt very much
That she has flat feet,
Although at this juncture
She has probably run ten thousand miles,
Her muscles are computers
While her brain is filled with dials.
