T'was the day after New Year's
And all through the house
Came the sound of snoring
From my partied-out spouse
So I in my nightgown
Went to the closet to dress
When I looked in the mirror
BOY, I sure was a mess!

I pulled out a jacket
Tried it on in disgust
I've got to start dieting
It's really a MUST!"
These pants are too tight
But they fit yesterday
I REALLY must diet, starting today!

As the coffee was perking,
I grabbed a sweet roll
Then put a dollop of butter
On the last donut hole
"I REALLY MUST DIET,"I kept telling myself
Then I noticed leftover cookies
All alone on the shelf!

OK, TOMORROW I'll start
I mean it, you'll see
Unless company comes over
Bringing goodies for me
I guess I'll wait till NEXT MONTH,
When temptation is gone
And besides, there are plenty of clothes
I haven't tried on!!

truth in comedy
Bea~

As usual you have managed to bring as touch of realism and the truth of experience to your work. I got a good chuckle from this. It would make an excellent Hallmark card. Good show.

Resolutions were made to be broken!
Thanks Bartleby, glad it made you smile. Wish I could do the same when I try to fit into my favorite outfit. In reality, i'm only 9lbs overweight, but to me it seems like 100! I live in a constant state of guilt, pigging out on my favorite butter pecan frozen, LIGHT ice cream! It makes the rest of the world and its problems go away!(puts me in a better frame for writing...try it, you'll see!

entertaining
Amusing, and as Bartleby said, with truth hiding in the comedy. Suprised you posted this in the middle of july, but it was a good read all the same.

Score 8/10.

I'm Jealous!
Hi Spud, judging from your avatar, it looks like you could eat a gallon of REAL Ice cream and never gain an ounce.
I envy people like you! Thanks for commenting.

hehe. yeah... :-)
hehe. Yep Bea, you're right. Dieting is not something I've ever actually had to do.

*goes looking for a tub of ice cream...*

Sugar & SUBSTANCE
tasty, delicious, full of lots of fatty sugar, easy to digest, should be an affirmation for Princess Fergie. Way to go, you're my hero!

Nix on the diet, Bea
Boy, can I ever relate to that poem...every time I diet I gain back every ounce plus 20 more pounds....I gave up...gained more being on a diet than when I'm just plain eating...You've got the knack...I''ve enjoyed your poems bunches...Kacee
