Treadmill

“One fine daaaay,
you’re gonna want me for your
girrllll”

4 television screens:
Gas prices are up.
Scandals are on the rise.
Tim Duncan is still in the playoffs.

“Though I know you’re the
kind of boooyyyy,
who only wants to run
arrroouuunnd.”

New chicken sandwich at McDonald’s.
Free gas with the purchase of a new Jeep.
Stay at Hampton Inn and love your family again.

“I’ll keep waiting
and some day, darrrling.
you’ll come to me when you want to settle down.”

Dust-covered earthquake victims.
A hotel has collapsed.
More violence and more talking heads.
Super-delegates and super-promises
Never again will I go to the Y
without an MP3 player.
