Willpower Prayer


Get thee behind me Satan.
I've eaten my fair share today.
I'll not become a glutton.

I recognise the pattern:
Just one more bar, is what I say.
Get thee behind me Satan.

I shall not let you push the button,
The button that leads me astray.
I'll not become a glutton.

Yes sir, I will not let that happen
Despite deliciousness. I pray
Get thee behind me Satan,

Is it your wish my frame to fatten?
Have you a plan to cook me, eh?
I'll not become a glutton,

No, I will all the cupboards batten
Until temptation dies away.
Get thee behind me Satan,
I'll not become a glutton.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
