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.
