Failed the First Week

Speak the words of truth
Till you are long in the tooth
Look them in the eye
And tell them no lie
A friend will know
When a tell does show
Your hips will grow width
Though you take the fifth

You fell from grace
When the sweets you did taste
Too good to pass
For a year… much too rash!!




Written for David’s “One to One” poetry contest

(Subject: A failed New Year’s resolution, but not mine !!  lol )

    Funny that I came back to this one today - I have just read a post on fb: "Speaking the Truth is the fist step to Wisdom." ... Yes, we all battle with the hips giving the game away ;-) Love, Su

    I bought a slim mirror the other day. It tells me what ever I want it to say. I had pancakes for breakfast, a braut for lunch. Snacked inbetween, just had to munch. Suppertime came and I ate some more. Now that slim mirror told me to get a bigger door. Good luck in the contest Debra. :)
