Verse And Worse

Random Wit, Errant Rhyme. Not A Literary Crime

If you were wondering why the ancient Romans
Never had a history of working out with yoga
It wasn’t the Emperor’s or even the showman’s
Insistence on exercising while clad in a toga

Just about to do a yoga workout while wearing a toga, yep.

It is always best to do yoga
Whilst wearing a toga
Cos if you go in the nud
its bad for the blood.
I always go one better & wear a hood
Though I don't look so good.

Sande said...

Yes. Bedsheets ... err ... toga's definitely do call for a different kind of exercise; No??

Perhaps if those Romans wore yoga slacks
They'd have taken a deep breath and learned to relax.
But what of our roads and aqueducts
If Romans had too early tried on a tux?

Imagine me in a long white toga
Whilst trying to do all this difficult yoga
I think your camera should catch a film composition
Of me mastering that very tricky Lotus position
For I would surely be tied in a knot
And not be able to be able to move a lot
I'd scream for help and you all would giggle
At this old codger trying his best to wriggle
And uncross his legs to a normal state
And vowing never again will I tempt such fate.
