Edits Okay

Written by: Claire de la Grange

Diet is really edit misspelled. 
I'd rather think of it that way. 
It seems easier to modify, 
Than it does to take away. 
  
Diet is also a harsh word. 
Starvation leaps to mind. 
A jailer who throws the key away, 
Because eating is a crime. 
  
Edit is a nicer word. 
Rearranged it spells the tide. 
A picture of ebbing serenity, 
Erosion over time. 
  
Diet is more of a challenge. 
A gauntlet slapped in your face! 
While edit simply reminds us, 
A pencil may also erase.
