because I’m definitely outside the garden.
I’m out in the carb jungle and it shows.
Where can I buy fig leaves with spandex?
I know why A and E hid.
I know why I want to hide.
My pants don’t fit right, I mean,
I don’t mean to sag, that’s not how I
usually roll, but now I have a roll and
it sags and my buttocks are packing
their bags and heading northeast.
I used to have a button on my belly and
now there’s just a button hole.
I have to think about how I tie my shoes.
A short chair is best or
I come up with no air in my chest.
Hand me that apple so
I can bite it to the core.
I’ll have it bronzed and stick it
on my dash to remind me
of my core within.
Maybe an apple a day
will make my belly go away.
>I think you just wrote my recent physical history. Great poem, Jerry.
>haha, really great poem Jerry.. maybe I should eat more apples!
>visceral write…being outside the garden and a bullet hole for a belly button…yikes…i dunno if the apple will help…nice write.
>I laughed out loud. Thanks for the fun read. I know the feeling.
>THIS IS REALLY GOOD
>This should be posted on every frig…I too could use more apples and less apple pie….it should have been an applie pie tree they took that bite from…bkm
>At least you know now the difference between good and evil. And they make clothes that have Velcro closures on them, much easier than tying shoes.
>Clever and funny, especially bronzing the apple. I'm sure it will help, as long as it isn't followed by the cry for a cheeseburger, fries and a chocolate shake.
>now it's time for a spring diet…smiles… clever write jerry
>Middle-age is a bitch, ain't it? (LOL!)By the way? That apple-a-day making your belly go away thing? It doesn't work, trust me.(I have an apple every day for lunch)
>Excellent written, made me laugh and very thought-provoking.
>Clever and fun. Love your wordplaying. 🙂
>This was such a wonderful read, Jerry. The button hole line made me laugh out loud. Charlie jumped up and started to bark – lol! Maybe it's just winter-weight? It's amazing how the warm weather gets us moving and a groovin' 🙂
>This is GREAT! I laghed out loud when I read:"I used to have a button on my bellyand now there's just a button hole"Thanks for giving me a good ol' chuckle on this gloomy Friday (rainin like mad in Iowa today)
