Use It

I've mucked stalls
bucked hay
split wood
and stacked chords
much of my adult life. 
Never been a stranger
to hard work.

And here I am
in my later years
to tell you about yesterday
when all I had to do
was carry a tractor battery
into O'Reilly's Auto Parts.
I had to stop twice to catch my breath.
Yes, it was heavy, but not that heavy 
and I should have parked closer,
but these are poor excuses. 
"Use it or lose it," they say.
Obviously, I have some work to do.
