Revelation - Poem by Linda Coker

I’ve started a brand new diet
But I don’t suggest you try it
I’m calling this one “Starvation”
Aptly named, a revelation
Since I haven’t lost a single pound
But yes, I’m starving so far, I’ve found….

Nothing much is all that you need
Broth and juice and sunflower seeds
Lots of sunshine, water and air
But let’s just face it – you won’t care
Your mind will be on brownies and such
And how you don’t like diets so much.
