Grumble Tummy



Don't know if you've ever had this affliction This affliction called Grumble Tummy Sometimes quite humorous how it vocalizes With some very strange sounds quite funny Haven't got a clue what's going on down there Thought it might be constructing a dam In an attempt to divert some stuff it's not fond of Like beets and brussels sprouts from a can Don't think it appreciates processing that stuff Would rather have ice cream and pop Guess it's not wild bout my changing lifestyle It moans and grumbles nonstop Told my tummy you better get used to it It's what you can expect from now on Asked to keep the grumbling down to a roar But it's allowed from bedtime till dawn © Jack Ellison 2013

    Just the other day I made myself a super powered, all natural, just veggies, fruits and nuts, power drink... and you know what? It gave me a headache! I'm guessing my body wasn't used to all the nutrition... lol! Btw I'm adding you to my favorite poets list... only the second I have added so far...

    Ha ha, too funny, Jack. Were you successful in telling it what to do? Mine does grumble when it wants something in there :) Great one!

    LOL Strawberries don't have many calories BUT the cream/milk and SUGAR are killers! Ask me, I'm an expert on this kind of stuff! Cheers, Jack

    ha ha ha, this is a hilarious write my friend, I loved how you portrayed your stomach as a noise machine, very ingenious if you ask me...oh and by the way, mine does that too, I think it's all the junk food I eat however, not the good stuff...oops, I know I know, that's bad, but I can't help a good bowl of strawberries...with a ton of sugar on top! I really enjoyed your tremendous poem here jack, such a great piece, Awesome Work!!
