Dead man walking

There’s a dead man walking
down the corridor
I don’t mind
but I object
to dead men running
especially a marathon
or worse
an ultramarathon

Of course they win
They carry no dead weight

(#NaPoWriMo prompt 1. Take the title of your favourite book, poem or film and that’s the first line of your poem. With some poetic freedom I stuck to that suggestion 😉 )
