Fries And Burgers



Feeling kinda cruddy, yup, that's the word Too many fries, too many burgs When will I learn I can't handle that stuff Stomach rebels, starts causing a fuss Once could eat nails and all kinds of gunk Now I eat mush and ground up junk My teeth are all gone, can't chew anymore Things go down whole, my tummy gets sore So such is the life of this senior type dude Head for the washroom, each time I eat food Food disappears like famous greased lightning Or I sit there for hours, really quite frightening Irregularity's my name, I'm Irreg for short Hope an operation, I don't have to resort An artificial esophagus transplanted in me So I can go regular like it once used to be Oh for the days when I could eat all that junk Those days are gone, who woulda thunk That one day I'd be eating my morning cereal Laced with Metamucil or some such material! © Jack Ellison 2012

    We are all guilty of indulging in that fast food stuff! As long as we don't make a habit of it... moderation is the key! Thanks for dropping by dear Lillie! Hugs, Jack

    You definitely have a problem my dear sweet friend! How big are these guys? I imagine they're quite small but possess great strength... right? And they seem to be technically advanced as well... they sound worse than little kidlets!

    Lol, I don't even have to worry about it. If it comes, it comes, ha :). Yeah, I know what you mean. I pretty much eat anything I want right now. Should start watching it though. Fast food, restaurant food every day are showing up on me, lol. Where is my New Year resolution? Enjoyed it, Jack. Have a lovely day!
