whipping boy (undeserved)

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 the legs die
each in turn
a lactic burn
brings out the acid, from the fans

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 lungs burst
muscles stretch and strain
yet the same refrain;
invective from the fans

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 heart passionately pumps
behind the crest
worn with pride, upon the chest;
proud – yet cowed
