Choose Your Own Adventure

♫ Reluctantly crouched at the trail head sign,
muscles pumping and thumping in time.
the dash clock flashes, the altimeters go up.
churning and burning, they yearn for the top.
they deftly maneuver and muscle for rank,
fuel burning fast on an empty tank.
reckless and wild, they pour through the turns.
their prowess is potent and secretly stern.
as they speed to the summit, the miles go down.
the goats get up and they get out of town.
the trail is empty except for those who ran,
still hiking and striving as fast as they can.
the sun has gone down and the moon has come up,
and long ago pre-NAB left for the top.
but they’re driving and striving and hugging each turn.
and thinking of a mountain for which they still burn.
They’re going the distance, they’re going for speed ♪
