Stretch it Out ~ A Poem

That’s a bit of a stretch,

Said the pessimist.

Let’s stretch ourselves a little more and we’ll get there,

Said the motivator.

Stretch your arms and legs for a bit of exercise every day,

Said the doer.

I stretch my body enough for the work I do every day,

Said the sloth.

Don’t stretch yourself too thin,

Said the condescending.

Spread yourself thick,

Said the considerate.
