Poet Angie Brown pens a piece on the London Marathon for this week’s Poetry Corner.
Thousands line up at the start,
A multi-coloured horde.
Some wearing silly costumes,
One man playing a keyboard.
With aching legs and blistered feet
The fun runners cut quite a dash.
One thing they’ve got in common,
They’re all raising lots of cash.
For some it seems a real breeze.
For others quite a chore.
And many as they reach the end,
Say to friends, NO MORE!
