A Poem That Encapsulates My Inner Monologue When I Go Running

I must have gone insane
I’m jogging again
It seems a bit perverse

There’s a voice inside my brain
Telling me to train
My conscience is a curse

My goals I won’t attain
I’m still in the slow lane
I think I’m in reverse

Running in the rain
Doesn’t help much with the pain
In fact it makes it worse

I don’t wish to complain
But I’m feeling the strain
I need a doctor or a nurse

I think that in the main
I probably should abstain
Before I need a hearse

Instead I’ll eat chow mein
And drink lots of champagne
And in a boxset I’ll immerse

    On the sofa I’ll lumpenly quietly remain,
    No weighty words, just weight to gain,
    Yours sorrily, Obbverse.

    Don’t show your remorse
    get back on the course
    imagine you’re a horse

      If I were a horse it would be kinder to put me out of my misery
