Swatting flies

I didn’t really exercise in Aspen.

At my age, I didn’t think it wise.

But now, being left behind in Brooklyn,

Constantly, I’m busy swatting flies.

I take my car and do a little shopping.

I see a friend for lunch and pleasant chat.

I watch “Columbo,” “Matlock,” even “Quincy,”

I like detective stuff, no doubt of that.

And when something is amusing,

Never doubt it,

I sit down at my desk

And write about it.
