O little toes upon my feet
the pavement in my sneakers meet
pushed and shoved, a little squeezed
going further than ever believed.
toe number two on my right foot
your seeming lately a little off-put
some throbbing pain is settling in
i’m worried something’s going on with ‘im.
ive been warned that your nail just might turn black
then fall off, and start to grow back
a price to pay for the marathon,
i’m getting prepared for the day your gone.
1 -2- 3, counting up to 10
losing a toenail is a matter of when
til then, i’ll paint you and treat you well
cuz heck, runners think the loss is sexy as hell! LOL
Ciao for now…..Diane
