It could be worse

has it all ‘gone to the dogs’
are you ready and waiting
to ‘pop your clogs’
or
are you weaseling out?

We all run to seed
except them bloody joggers,
they run for a need,
but I’ll be jiggered if I know
just what that need is.

Running to fat when you
run to be thin?
I can’t even begin
to explain any of that.

It was Wednesday
a million Monets ago
painting the moments
I was there, I know.

Keeping cheerful
finding lots to do,
and you?
are you keeping
cheerful too?
