Poem a Day, Day 29

Yay!!! I got myself caught up!!!! Only one day left! Whew! Today's two fer Tuesday challenge was to write a poem about exercise, or a poem in 2nd person. I decided to combine these, and had a lot of fun!

Exercise Can Be For You!

Is going to the gym just not for you?

Do you look at that machine in the

corner holding up your jeans and think

some day you should probably use that


Why don't you step outside? That's right,

you don't need those muscle men and Barbie

dolls staring at your cellulite-infused thighs

while you try desperately to find your

rhythm on the stair master. Why stay inside

your home when the fresh air and the blooming

flowers beckon?

Do yourself a favor and ride a bike, take a

hike, do anything but go to the sweat-smelling

gym or stay in your musty home.

Act now, carbon dioxide may get the best of

this planet soon, so hurry and get outside

before it's too late!

-Justin M. Howe
