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 Robert Louis Stevenson

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
