The Endless Fight
My sis and I, we made a vow,
to lose our extra weight somehow.
Long months we tried; sometimes we’d cheat.
Jogging! Oh the agony of da feet!
A one-week cruise; sis noshed and noshed.
And put back half the weight she lost!
A month she took to put things right.
The Battle of the Bulge is an endless fight!
But, I digress, we're only human.
You can only eat so much with cumin.
Butt, :) in that month she made her goal.
God bless her heart, God bless her soul.
So now when we get on the scale.
Sometimes we lose, sometimes we fail.
Butt, ;) we both get tired of the botching.
Of all this weighting and this watching.
