BANG!
And they're off
Shooting out of the gate
Like a bat out of hell

Giving their all
Speeding down the track
Hoping,
Praying to get ahead of one another

They're in it to win it
No matter what the cost
Pulling every trick
Psyching out one another

The finish line is near
Closer and closer
It rushes towards them
One more trick

Dust is kicked up
Whips flying everywhere
However one emerges
Riding through the chaos

The rider jumps off
Holds the trophy
The fulfillment isn't there
Has he actually won?

Through all the destruction
And pain he caused
The looks from his fellow riders
The looks of disgust, and loss of respect

Was it worth it?
