Some Cures Are Off-Limits

No amount of cha-ching could make me try acupuncture,

With my fear of all things with any sharp ends.

No matter the gain, I would rather the pain

Than do exercises that require me to bend.

Instead, give me a warm cardigan and gloves,

And in my car I’ll find a long trail that I can hike.

I’ll meander in the forest, kicking stones as I go,

For this cure appears as one that I quite like.
