Once in a while I wonder,
Upon thoughts both long and weary
While my brain does heavy ponder,
Dwelling on past foods sweet and cheery
Alas! I diet forevermore.
Chocolate! Thing of evil or of the devil:
Chocolate, tempting and succulent,
Fill me! I implore one single truffle
But alas! My heart burns as peppermint,
For dieting is forevermore.
And my stomach still is growling
In the rumbles of my soul’s pain
For delights sweet and tempting,
On which I’ll dine never again.
Quoth my diet: “Nevermore!”
Today I sweetened my diet by baking chocolate blueberry muffins.
