The 'Poem A Day' Project - Day 83 - Poem by Flying Lemming

I think that I should exercise
Maybe a bit would be wise
The papers say we are all getting too large
A swim or jog or strain or run
Could be what will get it begun
No boundaries when my will powers in charge

I need an exercise routine
That will help me too get lean
Pushing hard covered in aches and sweat
Do some push ups, lift a weight
Maybe even meditate
So I can have the best body I can get

But none of that is really me
Exertion won’t fill me with glee
I doubt I’d like the fit me it would bring
Maybe I’ll do it another day
I like my lazy kind of way
And only run if I’m chased by something
