Metzy's on her Mobile


EXERCISE

Metzy's on her mobile
yes she whiles away the hours,
always talking
never walking
doesn't believe in exercise.

Monnie is a different girl
loves to walk
not much talk
agile and serene
life is good it seems.

Metzy's health well it appears
is coming apart it's all arrears
aches and pains
and a tummy spare
much to her despair.

Monnie though is all aglow
for she walks to and fro.
She keeps active
and looks attractive
and at night, she sleeps tight.

Metzy however, well
her skin like leather,
lying in the sun
and all too, often.
She parties at night
she's not so bright
and she's always so tired
her boss nearly fired her!

When Monnie turns sixty
she'll no doubt look fifty
her bones well and strong
yes, my dears.
For she eats her fruit and vegetables
yes, her life impeccable.

But Metzy I fear may not be so agile
her scooter transporting her body, fragile!
Her take- away diet has caught up with her,
and she is still so tired
oh, when will she realize
she must exercise!

Jacinta (don't we all need to do more exercise)

Mumsy!! Gee you are talented.

I just wish it all wasn't so unattainable. :(

Thanks Davvy, but I reckon you are a Monnie not a Metzy! Love Mumma

i think Dad wants to be a monnie but is unfortunately a metzy. he likes to run, but he spends too much time on the phone organising his pandemic plan.

(good work on the picture and poetry by the way!)

Thanks James,it's fun to stir Dad but but actually Dad is probably more fitter than all of us put together! I think his being on call days are over as the swine flu is dying down, he must have done a good job!
