A to Z: X is for Xercise


Hello readers! Here are a couple poems that may or may not be inspired by poetic asides and may or may not start with the letter X:

Mechanical

Today everything is mechanical
where it is technology
or us working and walking blindly.

World Xercise

In the world we live today
you need to push yourself
push yourself to exercise your body

And also in today's world
you need to push yourself
push yourself to exercise your mind

In the world we live in
we do mindless things,
but we're not here to do that
we're here to make a world a better place
and we have to start by making ourselves better.

I think a lot of folks forget to exercise their mind as well as their body. Well done.

Goodness, I think I'm always pushing, pushing, pushing. I need about a month of resting, resting, resting--especially after this wonderful blog hop. ;)
