Too tempting to stay on a diet.

Forget the Diet

by BethShelby

Pies and puddings are so tempting,
but this diet I’m attempting 
won’t allow me to indulge in such as these.
I need one with sweets exempting.
Tofu’s gross, and so untempting, 
It’s not easy to exist on Kale and peas.
Skipping workouts sounds appealing.
My gym tights are too revealing,
showing every little pound I might have gained.
I need garments more concealing, 
so my ego won’t need healing.
If I skip, I shouldn’t lose what I’ve obtained.
I think dieting is boring.
All these calories I’m storing,
I might need someday in case I should get sick.
Tight waistlines, I am ignoring.
Other pastimes, I’m exploring.
This dieting fad's an easy craze to kick.
