Beast of Burden

Beast of Burden

At the track, is the best place
to find losers
If self-loathing was contagious
I found it there
You might as well ride
side-saddle
The way you sit back
no crop, no fire
Can’t even save yourself
You’re washed up
a bum
A bum to me
and all who count on you
Don’t blame the weight
we’re all allowed that burden
Might as well stop
with the self-pity
It’s the discriminating factor
why we fail

to set the pace
