I feel like I’ve found a new use for my pool
I get in it daily to help keep me cool.
That alone made having it worthwhile to me.
But now I have a new use you’ll just have to see.

Sure playing and pool basketball and pool volleyball rock.
But swimming in place now that’s fun, like a space walk.
I’ve always liked swimming, exercising and such.
More mental than physical, a new Midas touch.

Some say it looks nerdy with the equipment and all.
Some say it’s just old farty; what gall!
I say it’s young farty for a 63 old man.
Improving my stamina and I might get a tan.

So if you are looking for a workout that is easy on your joints.
Don’t laugh, take me serious and you’ll sure get my point.
Come over and try it if you like to swim.
I think you will enjoy it, and it might also keep you trim.

In closing you may have noticed I now talk in rhyme.
Kind of strange for an old/young fart coming in to his prime.
My mentor, an old doctor, used this technique.
His name, Dr. Seuss, and he wasn’t a geek.
