Bad For You Stuff



Words are flowing more easily of late Why do they flow better at times Probably because of the mood I'm in Especially after I dine Might be because I'm feeding my soul Most likely that's doing the trick Downing mounds of bad-for-you stuff Until I'm feeling quite sick Writing some humorous poetry lately Lying here stuffed to the gills Think I'll submit a few for publishing Then give away $100 bills Must have drifted off to dreamland Sure seems too good to be true Could it be real and not just a dream Better take your place in the queue © Jack Ellison 2013

    Thanks God Twinkies are no more, right? Nasty stuff... I'm like you in the sense of my passion for food. But ALL foods tempt me... the nutritious veggies to the fried chicken and mouth-watering fruit cobblers!

    The Twinkies are dead... long live the Twinkies! I'm still doing good with this so called life style change though. Stalled at -50 lbs. Oh well, I ain't quittin'! It's not a diet, it's a lifestyle change as they say! Cheers my young friend!

    Grandpa Troll has me sitting beside the lake with the Dragon on the other side. He said we need to make nice nice, and to soak in all that sunshine. Beavers of silence have damed up my words. The dragon's making it worse. But I can take off my fire proof suit. His flames only reach 3/4 across the lake. His puffing is really quite moot. Serves you right silly dragon. Hope it gives heart burn. Get it? Mean old dragon! Grandpa Troll says we sound like two little kids fighting. HA! We're big kids.
