My Diet Secret – Sh Don’t Tell (limerick)

Updated on November 16, 2012

Are you laughing at my socks?

My diet was going real well

That man in the mirror looked swell

That man couldn’t fail

My will would prevail

The lies bathroom scale tried to tell

      The pounds need to be hastily shed

      for holidays are near just ahead

      Less food now ate

      bland food no sate

      rather be fat and happy instead

      Great job, mh!

      Those scales should be subjected to a lie detector test, I bet they stop lying after that. I want those socks! :)

      I hate scales, they always tell the truth, they can sure try lying once in a while. Great limerick.

      Scales are indeed evil , they most of the times weigh us more than they should ;)

      Ha! It sounds like you are referring to my bathroom scale. It is such a liar! I enjoyed this poem a lot and that's no lie. By the way, I really like the socks.

      I am not laughing at those great socks~they bring back memories of days of old. Loved the poem which is very fitting at the holidays. UUGGHH! I don't use a scale anymore. Too depressing :-0

      Voted up and hit all buttons.
