If It Tastes Good, Spit It Out

If It Tastes Good, Spit It Out

By Elton Camp

Some diets for weight control
Fat-free, sugar-free do extol
Those who wouldn’t be fat
May have to eat a lot of that

Bran cereal that tastes like hay
And there’s even more to say
A muffin that is fat-free
Tastes very bad to me

With a salad I’m not thrilled
With E. coli, it may be filled
From now on, you must lack
A luscious, juicy Big Mac

French fries you eat no more
Their fat and sodium to abhor
Never think you can try
A slice of chocolate pie

Also quite hard to take
No more red velvet cake
The diet rule to recall
If good, don’t eat at all

    Hey Wayne, thanks for reading and for your kind comment. I am just an old man pursuring a hobby. I never wrote a single poem until I was in my seventies. The old dog managed to learn a few tricks, maybe. My favorites are the light humor type, although I've written a few more serious. None of them are intended as "great literature," but to entertain and to be different what what is so often found on these online writing sites. Elton

    Me either! Thanks for reading. This harmless little poem really ticked off some woman on Poetry Soup and she left the only mean, hate-filled comment I've ever received on this site. I checked and found she has done others similarly. So I banned and blocked her from any more comments. That's a great feature as it removed even her current tirade. Elton
