Holiday Treats - Poem by Ray Andrews

My colonoscopy went just fine
No polyps or worse for wear
The doctor happy and all aglow
Too interested in what's in there?

The endoscopy checked out my tummy
Some new pills to do the trick
I can eat a lot more chocolate
Until I start to get sick

We seem to never learn
These tastes that we acquire
Oblivion, denial and lies
Obscure what our bodies require

And to the holiday season
On his sleigh as he rode out of sight
He said 'Merry Christmas to all, and on
Christmans eat what you might'
