Oh Judge

Riley Ellis

Oh judge,

dear judge,

cant you see me,

standing here with nervous eyes

and my shaking knees?

Here I stand soluting in front of this death machine.

Or what they like to call it, a four inch beam.

You must be graceful.

You must be flawless.

You must tumble upon it without a doubt.

But oh judge,

my dear judge,

see beyond my shaking knees,

to what I hope is a beautiful beam routine.
