The #Marathon Man

Whilst most enjoy this event, and thousands of charities benefit, this day reminds me of being assaulted by a runner at the Flora London Marathon while I was cheering all the runners on in Druid Street.  As I was about to put money into his bucket, this ‘fun’ runner grabbed my breasts and sprinted off.  It really hurt.  My friend ran after him to see if he could catch his number but the Marathon Man sprinted fast past 100’s of other ‘fun’ runners.  This is a song I wrote about it, fantasizing that I’d caught him.   It is published in my first collection ‘Tales from the Deep End”.

I’m the marathon man, and proud of my identity
I’m the marathon man, I run for the, MS Society

I wear a blonde wig and carry a very large hockey stick
St Trinian’s style school skirt that barely covers my genitalia

I’m the marathon man, I can’t possibly fail
I’m an internalised homophobic male

I jog along fine as I grope at the girls I have such a good time
I run like flash Harry my balls bounce along to the finishing line

I’m the marathon man, I have destination
I’m like a woman without a castration

1991 three blondes and a dwarf
1992 ginger at the Canary Wharf
1993 St John’s ambulance nurse
1994 half a brownie pack – the Brown Owl first
1995 Left of the jazz band on the Jamaica Road, a woman on crutches
1996 Left of the jazz band on the Jamaica Road, a woman in a wheelchair, (the same woman?)
1997 Left of the jazz band on the Jamaica Road, that same woman wasn’t there, but there was a bird on stilts
1998 there was this woman who looked like a lesbian, but she loved it
1999 & 2000 lots more birds
2001 loads more, loadsa loadsa birds
2002 birds

2003
I’m the marathon man, burnt a hole in one of my, plastic breasts,
I’m the marathon man, but I think its time to, give it a rest

She ran faster than Harry and took down my number that bitch at the Bermondsey tree
The poor MS people lose out on the cash, and I’m having an alcohol re- lapse
