With menu spread between my hands,
With napkin open on my vest,
I'm hardly in the proper mood
For an exacting moral test.

I could order just a salad,
Eschew items fat or fried,
Display indifference to dessert,
And thus keep virtue pacified.

For virtue feeds on righteous acts.
But I feed on steaks and custard pies.
So salad, yes--But then the works.
I'll make it up with exercise.

LOL...Like this one Dom! I've had to retrain myself to eat properly, but sometimes a pint of Ben & Jerry's Phish Food is an absolute necessity!
