Half a donut bids me linger
"Just some chocolate on your finger.
Squeeze my middle, let it ooze . . .
Forget the pounds you want to lose."
I confess, I succumbed
And licking icing off my thumb
I resolved to work it off
But discipline is really tough
Still just as I can stand and eat
I can also move my feet
And burn those calories bit by bit
Til once again that 8 will fit!
