Moped on grass, moped on a hill
Mopend out of control
Moped crash on ankle
Limping from that day forth.

Limping the Summer on into the Fall
Trying to get back the stride
By Winter it just sore in the cold
Itíll bend most of the time.

Itíll come back after a mile
A mile of running
A shift, a crack, the pain is back
Trick ankle and lagging feet.

Thereís a hitch in the stride, a preference for bikes
For swimming, for the glide of skiing
The tight laces of ice skates
The ankle support, not running, not running too far.

Thirty years on, a triathlon
Ankle wrap done up tight
Ahead on the swim, OK with the bike
Dead last on the triathlon run.

Moped on grass, moped on a hill
Moped out of control
Donít crash a moped on an ankle
Wreck your stride for forever more.
