Pause, stand and take a stretch;
Too much work brings a wreck.
Pause, breathe and have a drink;
A little coffee is better than a swim.
Pause, step up and take a walk;
The body needs this gentle warmth.
Pause, chat and give a laugh;
So good a way to get stress out.
Pause, bite and have a chew;
They did this and well they grew.
Pause, take time and get some kip;
Never ignore this if you need to be fit.
Here you lie weak and perishing!
Stress out and die today; work lives on;
Work, take a good rest and live on.
No work, no life―this is no doubt!
Overwork, lose a life―is this sound?
Do work, do rest, and live around!
Never a day―all you need to be found;
Worry not―the days are still in count;
Sooner or later will come the pound
Sterling you’ve ever longed―but now
Pause, breathe, rest and live around.
