I’m jogging up those stairs
While I see that you can take it lightly
I’m panting and I’m aching
While you just smile politely.
“Escalators look hard work”;
My sarcasm slightly showing
As I’m clinging the rails,
The aggravation’s growing.
I’m getting tired with keeping up,
My patience wearing thin
I’m weighing up my options
And consider giving in.
I feel fatigued from climbing high
This work-loads never ending
But seeing you on easy street
Just makes the fight commended.
I know one day the cookie’ll crumble
And that’s the day that I’ll laugh last
Your fickle facade will serve reminder;
- The tortoise never ran fast.
