fiction poem for contest

I let out a scream when I stand on the scales - the bitter truth, I’ve joined the species of whales! I plan to go on a new weight loss diet food is grilled, you must never fry it! Those pre packed diet foods are such a racket there’s more nutrients in the cardboard packet I’ll be enrolling at the local gym and with luck I’ll be thin as a pin I’m going to take up weight lifting and think of the pounds I’ll be shifting In my Lycra I’ll cut such a dash I hope I don’t get a nasty sweat rash! I’ll give up candy and drinking root beer Looks like I’m in for a depressing year! New year 2018 Contest Sponsored by Kim Rodrigues 12/31/17

Jan: I was with you until you "gave up root beer". I'm sorry but that is asking tooooo much. Thanks for sharing your plans. I wish you all the best, now I'm goin' to grab a chilled one. oldbuck
