A Vigorous Man

He has reserves of strength,

The ability to meet unexpected demands,

No physical impairments,

The next President of the United States.


Slow,

resting,

regular heart rate.


Appears years younger than his age,

Intensive exercise with regular running,

Close observation of the prostate,

Leadership skills.


He is a vigorous man.


-Words by Dr. Ronald D. Gaz, arranged by James Hamblin
