I am Running, Running, Running

I am running, running, running.
I am running up the stair.
But I'm never, never, never,
never getting anywhere.

I am running, running, running,
but I'm going nowhere fast.
Now I'm huffing, huffing, puffing,
as I'm out of breath at last.

I am standing, standing, standing,
with a grumble and a frown,
for the escalator beat me
and it's taking me back down.

--Kenn Nesbitt

I loved it! Loved it!
I liked it a lot! Liked it a lot.
I liked it. Liked it.
It was just okay. Just okay.
I didn't like it. Didn't like it.
