Ain’t Diets Grand
. . . trying hard to lose weight
but that blueberry pie
has my name written all over it . . .
So I have to pick up
the grandkids after school
make an excuse to my wife
about needing to leave early
for some errands stop off
at Dunkin’ Donuts for a half dozen
scarf down two in the parking lot
with my cup of coffee
while waiting for the kids.
At least I’m not hiding booze
in the medicine cabinet
or in my sock drawer
or out behind the garage not that
I’ve ever done any of that.
