Limerick In My Pocket

This year I will lose weight I do think
No matter how hard too I will shrink
But what shall I not eat 
I don’t like anything sweet
This year I won’t lose weight I do think…

No cakes pass my lips no sweeties I eat
I eat some fish and a little red meat
What do I let go west
Perhaps a tighter vest
Will help the fat to slip down to my feet…

No luck I tried, my vest is now too wide
I tuck it into my pants at the side
That made them unsightly
There’s no more twice nightly
Hoist them as a sail, and leave on the tide…

My new years wishes and hopes are now gone
We have not even reached day number one
I am paying the toll
For each nice sausage roll
My hopes and man, have set sail in the sun…

My vest sailed out to sea, now what shall I do?
My chest in the winter perhaps will turn blue
If you have an idea
You can whisper it here
There may be something to keep warm we can do…

    mandy, this is really funny. It got better and better and I loved the ending about the vest as a sail and then the chest turning blue!! Glad I saw this. I was wondering if we could write more than one of them for the contest!

    Enjoyed your poem. I can't advise on losing weight / For I have tried as well / to put very little on my plate / but indulge in caramel.

    Lol, I whisper to you Mandy "let's have that piece of cheesecake". That would brighten the mood. And then we can go to Starbucks and get a hot chocolate. That would warm you up. Enjoyed it :)
