WHAT   CAN   I   DO?

I have been sat here all afternoon and
My ribs are stiff and sore
My legs feel very sluggish
It's ages since I put them to the floor
What can I do to take lethargy away, to
Awake my energy levels that's for sure!

I toyed with leaping over fences and gates
As I struck out for a jog around the field
And for some company I admit I had the idea of  
Borrowing someone's dog to run until it heeled
Most dogs were having a siesta though
On that my lonely fate was sealed!

My trainers hid around the corner
Hoping they could stay at home too
But since I'm on my keep fit kick
And now it was their time, they knew
To power walk around the neighbourhood
And not stop until my face was blue!

Brushing wildly past bus stops and shop windows
My elbows pumping action to swell my verve
Hips wiggling with a musical vibrato
Bikers whistled and cars had to swerve as
My vigour and my stamina were being sapped
And tell the truth, I had misplaced my nerve!
