Forever Dieting


It seems a lot of people, women and men
Mostly women, are forever dieting
This diet and that - the latest regimen
Low calories - nothing at all fattening

High protein low carbs eat on alternate days
And only five hundred calories the others
When you see a chocolate cake your eyes glaze
And you crave a fix with coffee at Druckers

Sometimes you sneak a little mouthful or two
Just a little of what you fancy is good
But then when you weigh quite a bit bigger you
You tell yourself that this diet is no good

So you give it up and pile on the weight
Months or more later you make a decision
Not to let delicious delights be your bait
A slimmer you, you begin to envision

Sometimes you sneak a little mouthful or two
Just a little of what you fancy is good
And on and on the cycle goes, yo-yo you
Telling yourself this diet is no-no good

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

I thought of you and how you love this beauty,
And walking up the long beach all alone
I heard the waves breaking in measured thunder
As you and I once heard their monotone.
