Dieter's Nightmare

I wakened on my cold soft bed
Without a pillow and unfed
Beneath the covers I could feel
My stomach's out-cry for a meal
I felt the churning of it grow
Into a burning dynamo
I thought it said with every quake
Cheesecake, cheesecake, consume cheesecake
Eat all you wish, eat all you wish
Aren't you feeling devilish


Parody of "The Watch" by Frances Cornford

    Jon Diets are very hard to handle and get through. But eating your pillow isn't going to help. Unless you are trying to have Santa's belly. LOL Thanks for the sweet comment on my Christmas Tale poem Hugs

    Thank you Jack. The next time you shop for a cheesecake just tell them to point out the one without any calories.

    I just finished a slice last night. You should have said something sooner. I love all the cheesecakes from the cheesecake factory. Strawberry is an excellent choice.

    Green? I don't smoke cigars so it must be the cheesecake. I wonder what I'll dream about tonight. Maybe another poem. I'm getting closer to getting my picture posted. I hope it's not green with antennae. Yes, I'll watch out for the calories and you look out for the little green men. Always a pleasure to get a note from you.
