Sticky Situation

Sitting sweating in the sun
Seeing sprinters swishing by
Sipping soda seems so silly
Still some sugar satisfies.

Sitting sweating in the sun
Screaming, “Stride! Swifter! Stride!”
Someone steps and screens my vista.
Seething springing I soar high.

Standing sweating in the sun
Soda sticky down my side
Sinner says, “So sorry, Sister!”
Surely doesn’t she seem snide?

Sweating sticky in the sun
Sobbing softly sans my pride
Sort of sad I spilled some soda
Still sugar would sasitfy!
