National Poetry Day_Poem 1_Just a Bite

N

So it is National Poetry Day and I was so excited by this that I made the gross error of announcing on twitter that I would write five poems today, backwards!

As luck would have it, I didn’t get home from work until 9pm and so I found myself rushing because I had to keep the promise I had made to myself publicly. So I will post each poem one after the other, in the order I hurriedly wrote them. And no, they are not all backwards.

 

Obese

Hungry, ever hungry

Doughnut filled with cream

The scent of it

The love of it

 

Just a bite

 

The look of it

Sitting in the window

 

Just a bite

 

Medium sized waist, expanding

Chocolate melting,

Cake

Delicious

The taste of it

Tempting

Slimming

They say apples are

One bite

 

Won’t satisfy my appetite

 

One bite.
