Bananas
Wrapped in toffee chocolate
That melt in the mouth
And run down the chin
Mmm…
Bells.
Calories to burn, bear in mind
Almost time to get the exercise in

Not today, though, I’ll respectfully decline
A time to eat plenty, drink and be merry
More bells chime, slip in another course:
Profiterole tower
Refreshing torte
Or gateau topped with winter berries
Decisions, decisions, my oh my…
Mouth watering treats abound
Sigh
Thoughts show signs they begin to drift
Oh no
The alarm bells wake me as they continually sound
