I used to be a runner

April 26, 2022

I used to be a runner
Fast and fit and strong,
Now I'm getting older
And I'm getting fat.
The midwife said stay active
So I keep on shuffling on,
But every day gets harder
To move my bump along.

I used to be a runner
And dance nimbly down the hills,
Now I jiggle with every step
And prefer going up instead.
Then I lean into each puff
Let my bump lead the way;
I waddle like a hippo
But it blows the cobwebs away!
