Obesity

Those candies hiding in your valise say your diet long since lost its lease. So, chew on those Reeses; chomp whatever pleases. You've got more that I can love obese.

this one is almost perfect, john, for its meter. And also great rhyme. One of my favorites of your limericks. I guess I misunderstood about the limerick called our new cinematorium, I can't find it anywhere on your list. WAs it something you wanted me to see outside of soup?

I love this poem about Anna Nicole. Although I find it rather sick of you to heckle the dead! LoL! Jk. Chewing up Reeses pieces beats eatin' pieces of Feces

What more could I ask for today? It is a beautiful day the sun shining and birds singing. I am reading your poetry in which you share a little of yourself maybe without even realizing it you have written from your soul. Thank you for sharing your excellent poetry with us John. Love, Carol

Wow! I got more than those 'two words' from you; you flatter me. Actually, it's my virtual electronic avatar you think you see. The real me hides deep out of site and is totally different. It'll take a lot of coaxing. I do think you write excellent poetry.

A Man is often clueless a woman wants him. She must be obvious beyond 'look hot and walk by.' He thinks he seduces when, really, he's set up. Just spoke with newlyweds who now laugh: she finally said, "Hey, we're going out, you and me." I love your poem but thought of them as I read it.

Yea, I know, I pander. In time everyone will be obese; I'll be in the right frame of mind for it.
