Here is an example poem using the idea walking:

walking in a circle

around the backyard

measuring a lap

seventy steps

so

at seven thousand

three hundred

there are twenty seven hundred

left to go

to reach ten thousand

each lap

at seventy steps

with twenty seven hundred to go

that means

doing the math

still doing the math

a little more

than thirty eight laps

all right

that’s far

just keep walking

just keep walking

thirty seven left

just keep walking

just keep walking
