A happy and healthy life I lead even today -great privilege!
Lo! What we see today when the Courts have to order
To control pollution here and there, sans any border.
Public transport to help -fifty travelling not to
Use fifty individual petrol, diesel vehicles!

Allow not children walk to schools two hundred meters
Away but drop in cars, scooters and bikes-no cycling
Resulting in obesity in young ones in teens!
Teenage Boys Are Much, Much Fatter Than They Were 40 Years Ago

Habits healthy, mind kept ever calm, faith in God and so on pure

In the early morning- and this can be replaced by running
Walking or running regular keeps one fit and fine without doubt
