Weighty Dilemma - Poem by Shirley Hanley

Whata yah do
when yah no longer care
that yer shortnin'
yer days with
that cake
yah just ate?

This is the moment...
the one that counts,
yah lie to yerself...

as yah sink
yer teeth inta
the chocolate dream
yah just crammed
in yer mouth!

This is the moment
the one that counts...
not the one
ten pounds
down the road

where you'll
run into the

of the one
who didn't care
way back
when yah were
sinkin' yer teeth
inta that chocolate dream.
