I woke up this afternoon,
And decided to take a bath
Before the mirror as usual
I looked at my tummy flab

I thought to myself
I despise being fat
I must go on a diet
And quickly, at that

I make the decision,
I'll start today
I'll eat healthy foods
And the rolls won't stay

I go to the computer
To visit PiP
I will keep to this diet
Oh so perfectly

Then I hear the news
We are loaded with ice cream
This is fine and dandy
BUT ITS COOKIES AND CREAM!

I lose my mind
Once those words are said
All thoughts of diets
Fly out of my head

I run to the freezer,
Quick as can be
I snatch the carton
With madness and glee

Into the kitchen
For a bowl and a spoon
No diets for me
This afternoon

Before I know it
I'm sitting with an empty bowl
Cookies and cream is one temptation
I simply can't control

Ice cream is my downfall too, SD My favorite is Ben & Jerry's Phish Food though!
And then there's strawberry cheesecake ice cream, chocolate, butter pecan, black walnut, rocky road....*LOL*

But I've been good and stuck to my diet
*scream!!!!*

Love your poem!
