Screw the Diet and Let's Eat...A NiaG Poem

My mind wanders to fantastical feasts

Gathered from previous wild roaming beasts

Such a dreaded thought for them I know


But watching the clock as the time goes on

My stomach makes a tune of a growling song

I can't help but yearn to go


This curious tune has me wanting to eat

Now feeling quite compelled I've hopped to my feet

This song plays on and continues to grow


It's not just Thanksgiving

I'm all the time dreaming

Of munching on something and so,


Today's a perfect excuse

To put my stomach under abuse

And eat 'til it starts to overflow


For the next week on

I see nothing wrong

With ignoring the diet and letting go

Hi NiaG.

This is a great hub. There's nothing wrong in eating, in fact it's healthy. It's just how much you eat that is the problem.

I'm one of the lucky ones as i can eat till the cows come home and don't really put any weight on and if i do i just eat very little for a day or two and it's all gone again.

Good hub and voted UP.

Take care NiaG.

Hello NaiG, I hope you had a nice Thanksgiving . Your poem says it all.We went to my son's house , right across the road ,( My son and Steve's brother.)We had a nice time and a nice dinner, that I didn't have to cook.My years of having the family get together's are over we more or less have passed it on the next generation. Time marches on .clara

Hey Carlon! Hope things are well with you. Glad you liked my poem. I was really just hungry for breakfast and decided to tailor it for Thanksgiving. Ha!

If I don't eat today, I am going to dry up and blow away! Lol. When you look at my picture, does it look like I am starving? (:
