TO LOSE OR NOT TO LOSE
 
 
Passing by a mirror,
I looked at my profile.
I guess I have gained some weight,
I had avoided a mirror for a while.
 
A pound here or a pound behind,
They seem to come too fast.
But I have the answer,
To exercise and lose those pounds at last.
 
It is not too easy as the years accumulate,
Soon forty years I will double.
And to lose weight I must,
Stop eating and that is real trouble.
 
The MD said I need to lose,
And he is skinny as a rail.
He does not know the joy in gaining,
And loosing I usually fail.
 
The MD says my health would be better,
If my weight I would lose.
Now I must make a choice,
To eat or starve, which will I choose?
 
Exercise is not an option,
I do not like pain.
Are sore muscles and kinks worth it all?
I may just keep the gain.
 
When I sweat, I smell like a hawg,
It reminds me of sausage and then,
I go into the kitchen,
 And I have too eat again.
