“Dr Mosley shares reading could be ‘key’ to longer life but how much you read matters”
When someone says I read too much
I tell them to get stuffed,
But only when they’ve left the room—
Especially if they’re buffed—
’Cos I’m a worm—a bookworm—and
I’ve never had a fight.
So how d’you know you couldn’t throw
A nifty right-left-right?
’Cos reading has endowed me with
A good imagination—
The only garlands I would win
Are wreaths for my cremation.
