Exercise Appetizer


Friends said I should exercise
And get rid of ugly pounds.
I have lumps where none should be,
I need to unround some rounds.

So I bought a nice outfit
And bought a jazzercise tape.
“Two hours a day,” it said,
I’d be in the best of shape.

But it seems that ten minutes
Was about all I could take.
And just to regain my strength
Took a double thick milkshake.

Then ten minutes the next day,
And with sweat still in my eyes,
I sat down and I consumed
Two whole coconut cream pies.

If you want my opinion,
A reformed exerciser,
A jazzercise tape is just
A real good appetizer.
