Purchasing Potatoes

Purchasing Potatoes

A Chapter by Dave Brown
"

"

Mary hung some curtains

To hide from peeking eyes

She’d come back from McDonalds

With a mega ton-a fries

 

She ate them in the morning

Ate them through the night

Ate them till there was not

A single fry in sight

 

Fries containers piled high

Right up to the ceiling

And what was happening to Mary

Didn't look appealing

 

She began to spread so wide

Every button was to pop

But in spite of the bulge

Mary couldn’t stop

 

Finally, from coast to coast

Every potato had been peeled

And the overworked deep fryers

Were permanently sealed

 

But Mary began to shake

Could not control her hands

Then desperately sought for more potatoes

In far-off distant lands

 

Travelled Asia minor

To Asia major, she also did go

And no where across these far-off lands

Had she left one damn potato

 

But she fits nicely in her clothes again

And now has a healthy diet

But if you do have a potato lying about

She would like to buy it

I think Mary is not a McDonald regular now but there are other guilt bingeing around... I wonder how did she manage...

Oh, my, how that Mary is tater possessed! I'll bet her breath smelled of fry-grease and onion rings. All's well that ends well, and now she's slim, good lookin' and eating tic-tacs. Your clever madness is in top form!

Sounds like Mary was a bit obsessed with French fries and potatoes. I have had those moments in life when I have over indulged in food and gained weight but not as much a dear Mary lol

She sounds like a light eater. As soon as it's light, she starts eating.
