A Smidge of Wisdom

I’d rather eat some carb than exercise,
but I’m experienced (that’s code for old).
Indulgence now no longer gratifies
the way it did when young, and I don’t bounce
back into health or fitting smaller size.
I need a burn that isn’t gastric juice.
The benefits delay provide arise
from vigor and a pleasure self-controlled.
Regarding this, I may be growing wise.

(Magic 9)
