A Healthy Life - Poem by Joe Hughes

I've got Germolene for spots,
Head and Shoulders for my scalp.
I've got Olay for my dry skin,
Vaseline for hands so chapped.

I take vitamin C for colds,
Cod liver oil for creaking bones.
These pills and potions cost so much,
Soon I'll need a large bank loan.

I swallow vitamin B for mental health,
A glass or two of wine each day.
I do sudokas by the bookload
To keep Alzheimer's signs at bay.

I go swimming, walking, climbing,
Eat fruit and veg five times a day.
I keep clear of ham and red meat,
My once blond hair is turning grey.

I'm so busy, busy, busy,
My health and fitness gives me strife.
On reflection I'm convinved -
I'd better get myself a life!
