Exercise is good for you, at least that's what they say; but is that always the case?

It’s Good For You!’

Exercise! It’s good for you!’,

that’s what they always say;

but my opinion differs,

or at least it did today.

I was in swimsuit by the pool

with not a drip of water,

when my friend admonished me,

to swim I really oughta.

I shook my head and backed away,

But swimming is such fun!”

A hand around my ankle and

the torment had begun.

I hit the water with such force

it splattered everywhere

and then I started sinking...

all that floated was my hair!

My ears were sucking it all in,

the sound completely muffled;

there was such a big commotion

as the peace became all ruffled.

An arm, it grabbed around my waist,

an oh, so welcome gift

when the grip turned more in to a hug

and I began to lift.

I coughed out water, spluttered,

for I’d very nearly drowned;

my rescuer bends over me,

my heart begins to pound;

for isn’t he so gorgeous --

but I really must confess,

I reddened from embarrassment

for I was such a mess.

Home again and dry once more,

my swimsuit is in the trash,

the pool now firmly out of bounds

since I caused such a SPLASH!
