Longevity

 

A route to longer life is found,

Down Occupation Way,

Where busy minds forget the time,

And age is kept at bay.



Where footsteps journey usefully,

On a time rewarding path,

Combating boredoms lonely hours,

Now filled with art and craft.



Life is not a practise,

It may well be all we get,

Get up, get on, live longer,

You owe it to yourself.



Lost for a reason to expand your mind,

Oh, don’t move a muscle, might extend your life,

No, don’t bother to rise, rest easy, supine,

Getting up, such a chore, lay back and recline,

Energy saving? Don’t jog round the block,

Vitality low?

Incentive? ‘You what?’

Too much if a pain to improve your health,

You’re well on the way to wasting yourself.
