I was once asked

to take part in

a telefon;

It would be fun

they said with their eyes gleaming

and perfect smiles,

You will raise lots of money

for charity

and feel great about yourself.”

Imagine how stupid I felt

after training hard

when I found out

that I didn’t have to run those

twenty six miles

dressed as an old

G.P.O. phone.
