I lie in bed waiting
Waiting to get the time
To go for a jog, a run, a walk
But instead I lie in bed.
The weather will be hotter later
I’ll walk this afternoon
Get your backside up and shoes on
I’ll do something around noon.
I’ll use the exercise bike
I’d actually rather row
There are some weights out there waiting
Pity that machine is broken.
One of these days I’ll stop making excuses
And actually get ready to go
Oh that’s today, I sit here in exercise clothes
Writing poetry instead – you know.
