VERSE | IN THE ‘EAT OF THE NIGHT

This week I said that I’d be good 
I’d stay off carbs and meat
I’d focus on healthful juices
And on salads. What a treat!

I hope you read the sarcasm
In the verse above this one
Even then, didn’t mean to offend
Tomatoes, lettuce and onions

But the intermittent fasting
From midnight to noon next day
Did me in, up to my chin
Couldn’t keep the carbs at bay!

And so my resolutions of
A healthy body and mind
They just choked, went up in smoke
My force of will became unkind

I ended up inviting in
A thousand extra calories
But dang! I’m quite determined that
Tomorrow I’ll eat only sunflower seeds

So if you feel like you’ve lost
The battle of the bulge
On good days, be resolute
On bad ones, go on and munch.

Let the heart guide you along
The mind is like Cruella*
No one needs a conscience deep
When the belly gods do yell-a!
* Cruella de Vil: a wicked character from Dodie Smith's 1956 novel “The Hundred and One Dalmatians”.
