Running #poetry

Perhaps I might go running,

Quite far, and never stop,

But then again running is hard.

So perhaps I’d better not

Train like a chimp

All this health and fitness stuff,

It’s really in your head,

I have a fight with gravity,

When I rise out of bed,

I do not need the gym to run,

I do not run at all,

I do not need to use a stick,

To hit a little ball,

I do want to play around,

In mud with other men,

I do not wish to kick something,

Or be the first to ten,

For being fit and healthy

is no good, no good for you,

Unless you can smile daily,

then you haven’t got a clue.
