Get Active!

Exercise is healthy, it makes you feel real good
Most people don’t do much of it although they know they should
Come on you couch potatoes, don’t sit and look a fool
Adopt an active lifestyle now, ‘cos being fit is cool

This was written when I was worked for Sports Development in Bromley, after a bit of office banter.

Messy business!

An early morning stroll with natures beauty all around
My progress interrupted by dog mess on the ground
They’re man’s best friend; I love them; they’re not the ones to blame
It’s their irresponsible owners who should hang their heads in shame
So please consider others, don’t commit that mortal sin
Of leaving dog’s poo on the path; just put it in the bin!

Written in response to my neighbours rant about those dog owners who have a disgusting habit of ‘forgetting’ their responsibility to pick up after their animals.
