London marathon

London marathon

Thousands of men
           and women and children
crossing a bridge
           all ages all shapes all sizes
all faiths all creeds
           every denomination
and of every ability
           crossing a single bridge
one end to the other
           of a finite bridge
the clump of their feet
           on the boards of the bridge
and on the sidelines
           thousands urging them on
the air thick with their
           cheers and their applause
life from one end
           to the other
