EXERCIDE
(7/15/10)


he did not
mind
in the least
that he had
turned
50

he
minded
being reminded
of the
fact

constantly

someone
even
had the gall
to suggest
that he slow
his exercise
routine

he thought
that
quite insane

his body
was in decline
so he must
step up
his efforts
not
reduce them

he devised
a Five Year Plan
for his physical
fitness

he decided
that his repetitions
of 50 and 100
should be increased
to 55 and 110
until he reached
the age
of 55

next
would be
60 and 120
until the age of 60
always out in advance
of his coming
five year
marks

by the time
that he was 95
he would have doubled
his current
activity

that seemed
definitely
doable

all that
he needed
was time
