Fast Food Junkie



I know we shouldn't overeat And junk food's a definite no-no But I admit I'm a fast food junkie Who cares if my big belly shows Don't dance for nobody anymore That's silly stuff's gone forever People either like me for who I am Or bite me, I mean... whatever! Happy as hell in my bountiful skin Not trying to impress the ladies Content to just sit and eat myself silly Nothing underhanded or shady “Silly old man” I heard someone say But I'm nearing the end of the road Allow me this pleasure before I depart My cravings are on overload! © Jack Ellison 2013 Wrote this before going my weight loss campaign!

    My greatest sin is Taco Bell... (I think that's where the dragon gets his hot sause, too.) We all have some thing in common... He's splashed the hot sause all over my new Easter sneakers... Dumb old Dragon... So I splashed some on his beloved tail... You should have seen the look on his face... It was priceless...

    Ha ha, I know what you mean with this poem! You can go crazy with junk food if you are not careful, it's better to eat an orange than a Hostess snack! You have written a fabulous and delightful write my friend! Even though I desire junk food as well I must be strong and keep from them just like you (at least what you are doing now)! What a powerful and hilarious piece here Jack, Great Work!!

    Dropped about 50 pounds since last June so junk food is definitely off the list. However, occasionally I succumb to the urge! My weakness is Taco Bell! LOL
