START WRITING IT DOWN AGAIN!

Did he get insulin the morning?

He doesn’t remember but yawning…

He wanted to take

But didn’t quite make,

Five ninety-seven’s a warning!!!

NO LONGER IN PARADISE

NO LONGER IN PARADISE

In Rehab, he did just fine,

So easy to toe the line…

Others decided

His limits contrived,

It was so easy to mind.

At home, rubber meets the road,

The line’s not easily toed…

His shakier quest

Slows progress,

Increasing obedience owed.

Healing time set back

Because of this fellow’s lack…

Of fortitude,

The foolish dude

Has his progress unpacked!

EXPORTING DREAMS—GINGER CREAMS

EXPORTING DREAMS—GINGER CREAMS

Came home from Upstate New York,

With much that would fill a fork…

Including home-made

Cookies we parade,

To eat them all would be dork!

Molasses and brown sugar full,

Exerts an awfully strong pull…

On two diabetics

And their diuretics,

Their self-control’s covered by wool.

So export those cookies ‘real quick’

Before these folks get sick….

Of eating this cooking

So sweet and good-looking,

Making diets difficult to stick!
