Ten Thousand Steps a Day - a Nonsense Poem

Ten Thousand Steps A Day

To walk ten thousand steps a day

is overwhelming, let me say

*

I put my trackies and joggers on

but by that time, the urge has gone

*

I'd rather sit and have coffee and cake

Tho' my hips, I'm sure, would wear that mistake

*

I'd love to dance the night away

and be like my kids and have fun and play

*

They never count kilojoules, carbs or fat

They're never still, kids are always like that

*

They love to run and jump and play

they're on the go the whole of the day

*

So maybe I should copy them

and act more like a kid again.

      Another fun poem Marion, we all need to keep acting like kids to stay fit and enjoy life. I love these short nonsense poems as I write micro poems and limericks myself..well done.
