A heart beat pumping though life every day
A rhythm finely honed to tick on by
A pulse that taps and never goes away
A cadence of existence to imply
A measure that keeps tempo and keeps time
A timpani in life that we all know
A stroke that paces like a structured rhyme
An undulating meter fit to go
Yet palpitate or syncopate the beat
Or feel it quiver anachronically
When pulse jiggers and jumps out of repeat
Go get a check-up with your own GP
For know your pulse and maybe stave off strife
Rhythmically aware to save your life
