"Run" - Zita B. Sanders



Sanders starts running to catch the bus, but doesn’t make it before it pulls away. Then the rain starts, but Sanders shrugs “Life just isn’t fair that way.” Backed by a tune that’s got more than a little in common with “Teach Your Children” by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Sanders seems to suggest life is a Sisyphean marathon, constantly requiring her to sprint to destinations she already knows she can’t make it to in time. Even so, she resolves to “run a little bit faster, get a little bit further, go a little bit farther.” A bit self-defeating, maybe, but Sanders has apparently learned that those who are on the road must have a code that they can live by.
