FORBIDDEN FAVORITE FOODS

FORBIDDEN FAVORITE FOODS

(Mostly as Haiku)

Diet swords crossed

Winning control of his fare…

Far-reaching food fight!

Super-Special sub,

Three meats, lettuce and cheese…

Scrumptiously okay!

Still  buying candy,

Pretzels for a rainy day…

Edema won’t leave!

Low-salt, high fiber

Candy bars masquerading…

Wise ones watch labels!

Complimentary,

Small portions of chips…

Regular soda!

Convenience kills,

Easily lost is control…

Salt and sugar win!

Eating half only,

Sandwiches enjoyed longer….

Maybe wife gets some!

Meatloaf and gravy, rare,

Mass. Turnpike revelation…

Suddenly set right!

Candy corn for kids,

Bag closed carefully between…

Cheating doesn’t help!

Diabetic mood

Carbohydrate-tidal force…

Glucose levels swing!

THURSDAY NIGHT FREE-FOR-ALL

THURSDAY NIGHT FREE-FOR-ALL

It used to be when paid,

We’d eat out at “King Jade”…

But salt and sugar

Isn’t good for the figure,

So plans have to be relaid.

I’m lucky that life is enhanced

By following bloggers entranced…

Enough to stay

Whilst I blog away,

And well-meaning criticism chanced!

Went out into the cold,

To shake myself of mold…

Out in that wind

My enthusiasm dimmed,

The idea quickly got old!

I’ve thought of another, so-to-speak,

Another poem to sneak…

In under the wire

Before it requires

Me to shut my beak.
