We humans are inconsistent,

none of us truly machines.

(Yet, s/he expects … … of me!)

Athletes typically only run their records once.

But surely when they take to the track,

they’re doing the best they can,

in that given time and place.

each genuine performance,

yours and mine,

let’s celebrate,


Our humanity.

We do what we can.
