Oh-So-Bad


It's a conspiracy, this dieting fad
Claiming good things are oh-so-bad
Feasting on blueberry pie ala-mode
Runs counter to the dieting code

Most diets are too austere
Refusing us those kegs of beer
If you don't fat foods avert
They threaten you with just desserts

If you can't obesity take
Stay away from chocolate cake
Cut-back on your calorie munching
At breafast, dinner or while lunching

I'm convinced they're much too hasty
Denying us that stuff so tasty
It's a conspiracy, this dieting fad
Claiming good stuff is oh-so-bad

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
