I write what I feel…

Don’t let Deprivation make you FAT

A little more meat and mustard

And go easy with the custard

All these years of living lean

Have helped me to appreciate

That I must not inflate

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people!

  4. Have given up ice cream, soda, cake and pastry for 8 weeks. I have lost 2 stinking pounds. You hear me, just 2 stinking pounds. So this morning I am buying 6 pecan pies, 9 apple pies, 2 gallons of Belgian chocolate ice cream, a gallon of chocolate chip and a gallon of pistachio. Then it’s 16 pounds of macaroni and 15 pounds of assorted sandwich meats.

  5. Oh no, Carl, you’ll undo all the good work. 2 ‘stinking’ pounds equals 4 kilos. Half a kilo a week for 8 weeks is very good going. I hope you’re just joking, my friend… I’m rooting for you!

  6. Living in wartime rationed Britain made people lean, Denise, and many of them (including me!) retained the habit of spare eating.
    Nice poem.

    • Bwahaha, Brit. 5 stone! That’s some Christmas eating! And it will be quite a job to lose… good luck! Just eat sensibly and it should melt off again. 😆
