My Exercise

My doc said I should exercise,
Start lifting weights was his advice.
I went down to the grocery store
And there I bought some bags of rice.

At first I bought a ten-pound bag
And I also bought a twenty.
Then I bought a fifty-pound bag
To make sure that I had plenty.

At first I used the ten-pound bag
And thought I had done quite well.
The twenty-pound bag, I used next.
I set goals and I would not fail.

The fifty-pound bag was harder
But I struggled to carry on.
My unfounded fear of failure,
I found now, had completely gone.

My husband has been little help,
I surely won’t take his advice.
He said that I should take the bags
And fill them all back up with the rice!
