Willpower - Poem by Jayne Davies

Well, I've just gone on this diet, and I'm about to crack!
I'm feeling rather peckish, I think I'll have a snack.
My tummy's performing, a Night At The Proms,
I really fancy, some nice buttered scones.

I feel optimistic, like Old Mother Hubbard,
I think I'll just take, a quick peep in the cupboard.
I open the door, and I'm faced with Ryvitas!
My insides by now, are jumping by Metres!

It's been going so good, and I'm well on course,
I head for the fridge, as I've just had a thought.
I think, I'll try those new Yoghurts I bought!

Now where did I put them? I say to myself,
Oh there they are! Right on the bottom shelf!
I check the container, that's next to the veg,
And low and behold, there's a Cadburys Cream Egg!

My conscience is telling me, No! No!
But my heart is telling me, Go! Go! Go!
I know if I eat, I'll live to regret it,
It won't get the better, I won't let it!

As I sit back, in my comfy chair,
There's nothing like this, that can compare.
The chocolate tastes dreamy!
The filling so creamy!
The only thing now, that's left to say,
Oh well! Tomorrow's another day!
