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.

  1. My favourite excuse is “I don’t want to get changed into ‘exercise clothes’ and then back again into ‘normal clothes’ when I’m done.” LOL!
