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 where 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.
haha…why is it we always have these thoughts post holiday gluttony…lol…and it seems to come with age each year as well…or you just have to work all the harder…
Can knowledge lead us to the path of weight reduction? Not if bronzed and on the dash board! Very nice no-holds-barred poem!
thought provoking comment zum!
this is really funny. sweet wonderful apples. apple pie. apple cookies, apple cake, apple sauce….
OK, I eat apples all the time, exercise too – why the belly?
Started with an apple and quickly moved on to carboliciousness…
I feel the same way after the past few days. I guess we can eat apples for a few weeks until it all starts again.
holiday gorging gets a person thinking about the belly all the time 🙂 …and we still have Christmas to go…fun poem!
oh jerry…you always make me smile..tried to picture you on that chair…smiles – my daughters have baked cookies today…think i should head for the apples instead…smiles
This was great fun. I know that for the sake of not wasting I have indulged far too much this year! I keep telling myself…when the apple pie from Thanksgiving is gone…or I’ll eat this pumpkin bread for breakfast, but when it’s gone…
there’s always the next thing to move onto….
I do recall how at college the health lecturer would maintain that if you always ate exactly what you fancied, over a period of weeks you would have eaten a balanced diet. Don’t suppose that helps, does it?
nope…not for me anyway
‘where can I buy fig leaves with Spandex’ hehe great stuff
Wal-mart has em I bet
