All those marathon training miles:
Was it all only pain;
Didn’t you see any approving smiles?
Dashed down from the sky.
All the aghast readers
Cannot cope with the why.
Is totally breathlessly for real,
But to flee the nameless dragon
And take 150 lives to steal.
We may never hear the call—
The desperately silently sad
Alone crushed by life’s pall.
