It is reported that cycling regenerates the immune system and improves health, thus increasing life expectancy.
Cycling’s a type of exercise,
And pensioners, if they are wise,
Will take such exercise each day,
Because they are convinced that they,
Will withstand bugs that may be rife,
And therefore have a longer life.
They cycle up and down the hills,
The while eliminating ills,
And as they cycle round the bend,
It seems their lives might never end.
But then, upon the other side,
A lorry might come slightly wide,
And this might some of them unnerve,
Causing the bicycle to swerve.
A swerve is good, at least it might,
Avoid a crash if not a fright;
But if a wobble starts instead,
It could result in people dead.
That would be bad, for them at least,
Require the service of a priest;
But also, it would change, you see,
Their average life expectancy.
So let your watchword be, “Take care”,
When you are cycling anywhere;
If longer life’s what you intend,
Try not to wobble on the bend!
