“I Hate to Sweat”…A Physical Education Poem


It’s mid-summer and students are living their dream, especially the ones who don’t like to sweat during physical education classes. If you don’t believe me, read the following creation from the poet laureate of PE, Dr. Jim Riley (this poem can also be found on the PE Update.com website).

I really don’t like PE at all,
It’s the worst subject I’ve had yet;
For everything we do in class,
Causes me to profusely sweat:

Sweat always drizzles down my nose,
Off my back and tummy too;
If you get very close to me,
I’ll shake some sweat all over you:

Oh sweat’s so sticky and drippy,
And it forms such an ugly goo;
It’s so slimy and it’s salty,
And it reeks of bad odor too:

I barely can wait for summer,
How happy I surely will be;
Eating chips and sucking sodas,
As I sit watching my TV.

By Dr. Jim Riley
