Look after those legs

editorial image

Legs and feet of all shapes and sizes,

Walking around in a million disguises.

Tall ones, short ones, and some in between;

Some should stay covered and never be seen.

Knobbly ones, fat ones and some boney thick,

Some look like matchsticks and some need a stick.

But regardless of shape, these get you around,

So look at them proudly as you walk on the ground.

For one day you might have to get them renewed,

When old age sets in and arthritis is viewed.

So cover your feet with some comfortable shoes,

And go for a walk to dispel old age blues.

For while you can get from here, there and when,

You’ll always be mobile till 110.
