A Devil called Chocolate ....

A devil called Chocolate


Oh!! you wonderful delicious devil in disguise,
I love you so but so does my stomach and thighs.
That tune you blow, I'm then a pied piper child,
With eyes delirious, I'm along for a wonderful ride.
Your beautiful taste, is near never the same,
The Melt in my mouth, sends me almost insane.
From up on that shelf, you flicker yours eyes so,
I have to pick you up, then bag you and go.
Unfortunately not every one loves you the same,
scales in my bathroom, don't believe my pound gain.
My sweet tooth is winning, this battle of the bulge,
And extra letters on tags, is a result of indulge.
So now I must start, my chocolate cold turkey,
reduce those numbers,and get down to waist thirty.
Don't worry we'll still, have the odd little fling,
When no one is watching, the shop I'll come in...

        Chocolate calls to me all the time. And, a waist-30--would work for me.
        I enjoyed it.

        • P.H.Rose

          Thank you Dford1...
          Oh I wish I was back
          To a thirty waist..
          I'm knocking on the
          Door of 38 at the mo..

            Maybe we should give chocolate visitation rights--only on the weekends! It can be a win-win.

                    Thankfully all the Christmas excesses in respect of this confection are now ingested and NOT to be replaced - but - er - well maybe just a few...! Great piece PH

                        Very true about the opposite approach. I can't deny I have this battle myself. She is indeed a worthy adversary. Unfortunately for me the way I beat it is by devouring completely. lol Nice write😊
