The Exertion And Exhaustion

The mind and body go to pieces

The physical exertion

makes the body tired

the limbs go aching

the joints cry for rest

the bending and straightening

takes the toll  in a grip tired

with the perspiration huge

the body loses its power

becoming a sordid  waste.



The mind in its full exercise

calls for a rest almost  pressing

as being totally exhausted

with thinking and planning

strategical and provisional

how to get along smooth

and how to execute carefully

that becomes an obsession

taking the life out  to a naught
