A Diet Ditty

IMG_1307

Happy April and Poetry Month!

This is the fifth year I have participated in PAD – Poem a Day – -via Writer’s Digest. So, I’ll be posting some of my efforts this month.

I didn’t want to do
This diet so constraining
Recipes so feigning
Not a bit entertaining
Is the goal worth obtaining?

Hardly worth the chew
Boring and monotonous
Sugar is disastrous
Yeast is preposterous
Protein takes prominence

Yet, pounds they slowly melt
Pants are getting loose
It’s working I deduce
It’s worth it skipping juice
And passing on the mousse

Feeling kinda svelte
Discovering new food like Columbus
Learning to enjoy hummus
Feel less like a hippopotamus
Just like the doctor promised
