I Didn’t Buy The Cookies (Poem)

P1010686I didn’t buy the cookies.
I didn’t buy the cake.
I didn’t buy the donuts,
And that was my mistake.

Junk is calling, I’ve got the munchies!
Body’s craving salt, sweet, crunchy.

I didn’t buy potato chips,
I didn’t buy a candy bar.
I want to eat a snack food, but
I don’t want to get in the car.

Junk is calling, I’ve got the munchies!
Body’s craving salt, sweet, crunchy.

If I want a brownie,
I’m going to have to make it.
Heat the oven, measure flour,
Mix, wait, dishes, I can’t take it!

Junk is calling, I’ve got the munchies!
Body’s craving salt, sweet, crunchy.

P1020877My cabinet holds some oatmeal.
My fridge is full of carrots.
I’ll settle for some hummus
And plants with all their merits.

Eat what’s easy, I’ve got the munchies.
Oats and carrots, sweet and crunchy.

I didn’t buy the cookies.
I didn’t buy the cake.
I only bought the vegetables,
And that was no mistake.
