rolling out of bed I prepare to dart.
Tripping down the empty halls
trying to avoid the intruding walls.
My senses awaken by the smell
of hot cinnamon buns, diet farewell.
Tomorrow I will curse my tummy
for eating something so very yummy.
And when it’s feeling quite sour and gummy
I won’t go crying to my mummy.
I’ll suffer through it, I’ll be strong
and I’ll get past it, it won’t take long.
Some Pepto my help sooth the ache,
a cherry coating for my sweet mistake.
I’ll check the medicine cabinet but it’ll be bare.
I’ll be a little upset and think life isn’t fair.
For then it’s cherry that I’ll be craving
and I’ll remember a frozen treat I’ve been saving.
I’ll quench that craving with some Ben & Jerry’s,
their famous Garcia is loaded with cherries.
