Haiku for a Refusal to Run in Winter

Oh, I see you there, man
In your goggles and your tights.
I will not join you.

I am not hurting
Not broken, injured or bowed
But merely lazy

Clinging to my girth
Which I earned with carbs and sloth
I refuse the cold.

Minus ten is it.
Colder and I don't leave home
Tough Canuck? Not me!

Springtime please come soon,
I cannot afford new pants.
Shoes await gravel.
