I'll publish or perish;
  find someone to cherish;
     move someplace phenomenal;
        display an abdominal
           physique to inspire,
              which I shall acquire!

. . . Or perhaps, just retire.
Practicing what I preach, and entering `Kneeling-Glory's 25th Birthday Contest. Especially since we share the same birth month. :la:

The idea is to write a poem of exactly 25 words, about one's goals for the next quarter-century birthday — in my case, my 50th.

:plotting: Still wondering if perhaps I should've worked in something about AARP, though. After all, it's . . . only four more years! :omfg:

(And relax, I'm not actually jinxing myself; 'publish or perish' is a bit of wordplay based on the academic concept. :paranoid:)


Update, as of Dec. 1: Apparently, this was good enough to place. Cheers!

:blushes: Thanks; I'm honestly surprised by the positive outpouring for what was, to me, just a bit of silliness.
