Upping the long count

[for Evan S. Daniels, MD}

you gave me 10 more years to live,
but not yet 15, saying a study was
not yet complete to project that.

When would it be?
“Give me 10 more years.”
Since I’m about to turn 68,
I’ll be turning 78 by then.

you want me to lose 4 lbs.
over the next 4 mos.
until I next see you,
& suggest the South Beach Diet,
so I immediately bought the
cookbook, carb-counter, etc.

Now, if I quickly lighten up,
what will that buy me?
