The Non-Resolver

I’ve been watching my weight since 14, but with all of the diets I’ve seen, they’ve become a big no-no. This here dieting yo-yo has stopped trying to be super lean! Other problems I’ll change as I go. I don’t need a New Year to say so! Said a wise sailor man: I yam what I yam! Why improve on a good thing - ya know? So the cause of the most bellyaching at this time of the year I’m forsaking. When you know yourself well. . . why then go through such hell! Resolutions I’ll never be making. For Gwendolen R.'s "A Limerick in My Pocket Contest"

    Congrats on your winning work..Yes, it is better to make up one's mind to do anything than to make a resolution..If one makes up their mind, they will stick to whatever they plan to do..Sara

    Good Limericks. Thank you for reading mine. I just stuck with the one - this is what I am used to (having been indoctrinated by the English side of the family as to what a Limerick should sound like - naughty ... lol) Wishing you a great weekend. Love, Su

    Miss Poet Queen. how lovely it is 2 read your poetry again. having this month off from work will help me enjoy a few of my favorite poets. I picked up a new case of no -resolutions this year. ha! 2B honest I like the way you sound sparky on this poem. makes me want to take your limericks and put them in my pocket. LMFAO. *LUV~SKAT

    My sentiments exactly, dear Andrea. Making resolutions, then failing, (which is generally the case) usually leads to extreme guilt which might last the entire year. Love, daver

    A great limerick Andrea. Lol Like yo-yos weight always goes down and than back up again when dieting the yo-yoing way. It's never ever a good thing. Thanks for putting a laugh in my breath. Warm Smiles, Connie
