I simply cannot remember
How many days I am into my health kick
I am not yet in the double digits
I am, somewhere, I hope past the sixth.
Perhaps it is my seventh day
And things are going surprisingly well
We had the end of term party
No sugar did I partake of.
I ignored the oreo muffins
And the lemon drissle cake
I did not touch the chocolates,
Nor the cranberry crackers and quince paste.
I stuck with the fruit and sushi and a small slice of vegetarian slice
No celebratory end of term wine
Greeted me at the door when I got home.
I did not crave a chocolate
I did not want a drink.
So today I was taken by surprise
When a relative gave me a call.
You see he’s getting married
That is something worth celebrating
But I have spent my life celebrating
With chocolates, wine and sweet cakes
How do you plan to celebrate
When all those things are out?
Guess I will have to be creative
With dinner now tonight.
