Never go shopping when you're hungry, they say
Is that why I bought mounds of junk food today?
Doughnuts and cakes…Oooh!, look at those pies…
Forgetting my belly was bigger than my eyes.

But how can you resist all that fattening food?
It’s gorgeous and unctuous and tastes so good
But tomorrow is the day of diet and regret
A grape and a lettuce leaf is all that I’ll get

But, my thinking is this,“I could be run over today!”
So I’d better stock up, at the confectioner’s bay
I’m feeling riddled with remorse for being so weak
But there’s time enough in heaven, to give health a tweak.

Oh! Look at that cake! Lemon Delight sounds so nice
I’ll sit down with a cuppa and a delicious big slice
Now if only I had a bit more self-control
I’d be slimmer and religiously stick to my goal

But there’s a devil on my shoulder forcing me to buy
Urging me on,... “go on, ..sample that pie”
“Begone  Nick” I say,” I am perfectly in control”
While my hand reaches out for another sausage roll.

Doomed, doomed, I’m doomed!
Sometimes people don't want to hear
the truth, because they don't want
their illusions destroyed.

-Friedrich Nietzsche

Lovely poem Meeow well done!


I have my own way of solving the problem.
When the devils makes me do it, I'll skip the next meal , or only allow, veggie soup or salad, while thoroughly enjoying my treats in the meantime, and eventually include some extra long walks or swimming in the day.....

Says she who just put on a few extra pounds , since being quarantined home for nearly 2 months because of coronavirus and long rainny season!:ohmy:

Will hide my m&ms.:laugh:
Smile to life and life will smile back at you.

Thank you pascalou.

It is nice to know I am not alone and there is an alternative for eating a grape and 1 lettuce leaf.
How awful to be quarantined for so long, frightening times and I suppose it is going to happen here pretty soon.
My supermarket is rationing what customers can buy, it may help if they ration cakes, pastries, chocolate and all the unctious delights.:laugh:
I'll look after your m&ms if you like.smile. :evil:

I would have a hard time keeping the M&Ms around more than a day! Pascalou, did you actually have the coronavirus or were you exposed to someone who had it? Sorry to hear that you were isolated for so long.
Blessings,
Harry

Thank you Margot, a true story and something I have to battle regularly.
A good excuse to blame the devil eh?:laugh: :laugh:

The Devil makes me post nonsense even though I try not to.

Oh yeah. He makes me eat ice cream too. Specifically Breyer’s Chocolate Chip Mint. It’s delicious!

One persons view of nonsense as nonsense, is another persons delight in the nonsensical WWWoody.
Keep posting nonsense.
