I wax poetic as lifeblood imperceptibly wanes
Aging baby boomer
no longer fit as a fiddle
accumulating extra adipose tissue
around the middle
ain't no impossible mission
whence thumbs I twiddle
to shed unwanted

whereby honed toned physique

A Hearty Valent Sign
Ah what fair moan

large if this
chaste ole buoy got cornered
into an alleyway
by a bevy of beefy
