around the world in a few swims

I’ve set myself a target
to swim around the world,
length by length I’ll do it
just you wait and see…
let me work out now
how far I’ve got to date..
if I average out the lengths
to, lets just say, ten a day
and to date I’ve been
hmm hold on while I think..
ok maybe ten times it seems
then by my reckoning
I’ve probably swum
about as far as tesco’s
by now and to tell
the truth I’m
totally
knackered
and I might just
turn around
and come back..
but…
if I’ve calculated
correctly…
it’s only another
two swims after
tesco’s until the pub
and if I can make it
there
I can make it
anywhere
and the world
might just be
in my
reach.

    Hey, that was pretty cool! And by your reference to “Tesco’s” and the use of the word “pub” one would be led to assume you are in the UK. I have a writer friend who lives there. She says it totally rocks!

    cheerio!

    Hahaha. If you can make it to a pub, you can make it anywhere? That’s too funny. 😀
