Mona's given us the Taste test!
damn those taste buds,
the evil sweet ones
they're not my "buds" at all!
I'd rather they not hang out with me ever!
they lead me into temptation
it's the Garden all over again
but it ain't, "How do you like them apples?"
and I can't just stop at one prophetic bite.....
"try this delicious-to-die-for
devil's food chocolate cake
with seven-minute boiled icing"
(yeah, the devil made me do it alright!)
why don't I crave some low carb crunchy cream cheese on celery?
or even some dry saltine crackers?
(I used to lick the salt off first!
oh, just put me out to pasture near the salt lick...
but that's a tale of a different tongue!)
no, it's gotta be the sweetest, most decadent, dessertiest food
just to wreak havoc with my Type 1
insulin dependency addiction thing
which has me shooting up
of the Banting drug
(God Bless him!)
to try and chase down the mother lode of sugar
as a cheetah runs down an antelope
on the dessert plate of the Savannah
only to O.D.
and have to consume even more
in this manic game of sugary charades
until the yo-yo effect
leaves me spinning off my axis,
sense of taste!
(Curse you, Mona, I'm craving that cake now!!!)
