Bending oft into awkward positions
Results in changing of dispositions.
Each stretching makes you relinquish your shape,
Angling to a form toilsome to escape.
Keeping collected turns into a chore,
Inching to a point of bearing no more.
Nagging your spirit with tension until
Grinning and bearing it–you lose the will.
