"Dieter's Christmas" an original poem

Monday, December 28, 2009

I wrote this last Christmas time for the thread "Wheel Shall Overcome and Other Random Thoughts" It is still quite appropriate this year though it is a couple of days past Christmas now. I reread it and enjoyed my handiwork hope others do also. (Oh, I'm so humble. Really I am or I would call more attention to myself.)

Dieter's Christmas

It's the day after Christmas and all through the site
The Sparkers are logging and finding a fright
The dinners are over and it's time to account,
But oh, how hard to see the calories mount!

So now it is time that we all should declare
Get off of the Sofa! Get out of that Chair!
Time to look at the damage we've done
Get on your shoes and go out for a run!

Today is a new day, we all start anew
So we were "naughty" on the one we went through
We can pick ourselves up, we can all take a stand
Get back "on the wagon" just like we had planned.

Or maybe you find that you did much, much better
And stuck to your limits right down to the letter.
Congratulations to all those with self-control
You are further ahead and will reach that goal.

My hope is this New Year will be one that finds
Despite all our problems with economic declines
That we prosper in ways that brings us new wealth
Of friendships, wisdom, strength. and good health.
