Do you remember your first action movie?
The first man whose life you took
The thrill of the kill
Your arms rippling, sweat dripping off your face
Blood gushing from the victim as you exhale in triumph

Do you remember your first set of weights?
The first push-up
Pushing yourself to the limit with big aspirations
Veins bulging, low deep grunts of success
The barbells clanging as it hits the floor

Do you remember the first Terminator?
Your first blockbuster
Your first “I’ll be back”
Chases, guns, destruction
The gigantic explosions erupt behind you

Do you remember your first debate?
The first real voice in politics
Your first argument
The bold deep diction as you surpass your opponent
The crisp applause of the audience

Do you remember your young athletic body?
The huge biceps that could move mountains
Your rock hard chiseled body
And now… as your gelatinous body sags freely in the wind
All that doesn't matter, because you’re still the best
Thank you for everything, but please
NO MORE TERMINATOR MOVIES!
