Perfectly polished and ready to go

she sacrifices none of her femininity.

Constantly questioned and tested

answers on the tip of her tongue.
She can’t afford a single slip

Barked at for answers relentlessly asked

no time to rest, no slowing down
looking for a champion to take her place
when at last the marathon is over.
No weakness is here

only the shadow of a giant.
