4 Substitutes – 1

The body tells us everything
But we're not great at listening
To what are limitations are --
On pathway, or in house, or bar --

And so, we everyday conclude
That we should, still, ourselves delude
And try again our lives to make
In just an hour, 
 what we take the other twenty-three

 to break
