I Am Laura's Stomack Part 2

Written by: Larisa Rzhepishevska

My God! – I thought, 
now she becomes better and better. 
May be I’ll be a little bit fatter? 
But…anyway…it’s early to shout “hurray”. 
On Saturday she went to the restaurant with her boyfriend. 
I didn’t want to offend her, so I kept quiet, 
I so much desired to eat 
a good piece of meet, something sweet. 
You know that I didn’t eat for the whole weak. 
“You look good, but you are very thin, 
you have to take some food and it’s not a sin”- 
the guy said with a grin. 
I thought he was the greatest lad 
and my dearest Laura was just mad. 
It was late at night when she felt bad. 
I was also feeling sad. 
Martini, mushrooms, potato, beef… 
all that nice food decided to leave. 
Shut up, lever! She is clever! 
Everything is under control, 
she knows that I hate alcohol. 
At night, with a little bit of fight, 
I said goodbye to all the food she ate 
without any regret. 
Now I know: she doesn’t like to be fat. 
Next morning she drank only mineral water, 
her boyfriend has brought for her. 
And I certainly kept quiet. 
What more can I say? 
We are on diet.
