The Sugar Shack Is Closing

I adore sweets and that's just pathetic
cos' for ten years I've been diabetic.
When that pie rolls around 
or the muffins are crowned
my desire for them grows quite kinetic.

There are wrappers hidden under the bed
and there's leftover banana bread.
Every year I vow
to stop eating somehow.
If I keep this up I could be dead!

So I'll ring out the old-start anew.
I can do it if I think it through.
Throw the sugar away
and start over today.
Eating rabbit food's what I'll now do!

    Congratulations on your win, Deb. My late mother had diabetes and we had to hide our sweets - though she made a joke of it and pretended to search for snacks, she knew the risks. A good way this to get a valid point across. Love, Su

    I enjoyed these too, Deb. And hey, there are lots of things just as good as sugary foods. My hubbie got diagnosed with borderline diabetes last year. Amazingly, all he had to give up were all his COKES he drank in HUGE big gulp cups each day and he lost 30 pounds. It makes me sick . If only I could lose weight that easily. He still eats lots of sweets, but at least he takes pills now and is thinner. I wish you good luck with your resolution. Try sugar free candies!!

    This is a perfect write on diabetes! It sucks if you really have that, I empathize with you if you do! I have relatives that have it and I see how hard it is for them! It makes me glad that I don't have it! This is a wondrous and glorious write on this subject! I thoroughly enjoyed reading this incredible poem this morning my friend! What a powerful yet funny piece, very creative, Great Work!!
