Chin to Butt

Chin to Butt

A Chapter by Dave Brown



While Covid has us in its trap

Good foods tend to seek our lap

From elder folk to little squirts

We’re more inclined toward deserts

With trails closed and all gyms shut

Tho’ results are not clear-cut

Foods seem jammed into the gut

Causing excess expansion, chin to butt

With home cooking now the fare

Cookies, cookies, more than a pair

Syrup sloshed upon pancakes

Restricted by just belly-aches

Weakened legs tending to wobble

As we all, gobble gobble

Even ice cream’s on a pace

To that jelly-belly, it’s a race

One of your best rhyming riffs, so applicable to today's eating angst! About 1 in 3 Facebook postings are about this topic -- either admiring food or whining about how an excess is parked on one's hips. I made it thru the holidays sweet treats & I can still fit in my wheelchair without the wheels sanding a trail across my thighs! Yesterday a produce box delivered -- many different super-fresh lettuces, carrots, celery, & more . . . YUM! Back to salads as meals! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
