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.
