Climbing the dreaded "hill"
I took a walk today
With my neighbor who's also my friend.
We walked in our apartment complex
Round and round the bend.
We first walked up a hill
Which was very hard to pass
My legs and feet were hurting
So was my "ass".
We finally reached the top of the hill
Panting as we got there.
We wanted to slow down but
Our thoughts didn't together share.
So we plodded along the flat surface of the ground
And came to a down hill slope
I sighed a big sigh of relief
That seemed to raise our hopes.
However when we reached the bottom of the hill
And were walking on the flat surface again
We realized that we had to walk up
To the place where we had begun.
Sighing and panting in distress
We doggedly climbed
Until we both reached our respective apartments
And just about with exhaustion, died.
