Yoga App Poem


I want to tell you about the new app that was released last week by my brainchild, Capital Yoga Publishing, but I'm also feeling a bit poetic so I'll see if I can use my words differently. If you feel moved, snap your fingers. (I think this might be the first poem about an app...)

A new yoga app was released last night
pictures, sound, stretches will delight
your arms, legs, torso, organs
spine, skin, what rhymes with organs?

A portable, mobile, current invention
to take with you to your next convention
in Toronto, or Russia, or even online
these poses will go with you every time
on your floor, your carpet, your hallway, your lawn
plug in your speakers and press play to go on.

The app is not free it is something that costs
just the price of one class or less it is thought.
Please "Like" your yoga teacher by buying her app
even if you only play the end to take a nap.

This was inspired by the new release of Louise's Hot Yoga late last week and I hope you like it.

First edit:

A new yoga app was released last night
pictures, sound, stretches will delight
your arms, legs, torso, organs
for Johns, Dans, Jamines and Morgans.

A portable, mobile, and modern invention
to take with you to your next convention
in Toronto, or Russia, or waiting in line
these poses will go with you every time
on your floor, your carpet, your hallway, your lawn
plug in your speakers and press play to go on.

The app is not free it is something you buy
for the price of one class you should give it a try.
Please "Like" your yoga teacher by buying her app
even if in the end you just play it to nap.

A comment that came by email from a happy customer:

Jamine!

Purchase downloading as we speak!
I'll try it out tomorrow, can't wait.

Nice poem! You are right: rhyming with "organs" is impossible (but English is not my native language)

My best attempt would be:
...
your arms, legs, torso, torso, spine and organs
puppy stretching like a whole nest of dalmatians
...
and it doesn't really rhyme.
