Poetry Month - Day 18: Skip

My son, Sean is getting married in September and I'm trying to lose weight before the wedding. I think it's obvious, from the way I used the word Skip in my poem, that it's weighing on my mind (pun intended)! Thanks, Julie Rowan-Zoch, for suggesting today's word!!


To lose some weight, I’ll need to skip:
potato chips with onion dip,
pepperoni pizza pies,
hamburgers with salty fries,
milkshakes that are thick and rich,
white bread meals that end with “wich”,
pasta with a creamy sauce -
that’s the way to see some loss!

Cut out cakes and cookies too,
yummy donuts filled with goo,
chicken nuggets fried in lard,
candies, whether soft or hard,
pancakes, bacon, sausage links,
even alcoholic drinks.
Skipping these will make me thinner.
Not today - it’s time for dinner!

  1. I got this web site from my friend who shared with me on the topic of this web page and
    at the moment this time I am visiting this website and reading very informative articles
    at this time.

    Here is my blog:

  2. However, remember this advice: Do not make the topic too
    broad; for example, if you decide to write about global warming, don't try to discuss each and every aspect of global warming, which would turn your paper into a book, but, instead, choose a focus this manageable and, therefore, can be discussed adequately in a student paper. You can readily adopt a complete training plan that allows you to work on all of your muscle groups. 'Tis the season to gain weight, from holiday parties to cookie exchanges to experimenting with new recipes
    for Thanksgiving like buttery biscuits stuffed with five
    kinds of cheese.

    It contains natural floral scents and is extremely effective against Bed Bugs, especially when
    used in conjunction with Bed Bugs Mattress & Pillow Covers.

  5. It is unfortunate that most men avoid wearing ties now because of
    the discomfort factor. The tackle is going to require an initial investment
    but the cost per hair rig will work out far less than buying them ready made from a
    fishing tackle shop. A single chain beneath your shirt, along with a watch and class ring are fine.

  10. Make sure that the referral program is worth the time and effort
    of other people to recommend people to your company. You can paste pictures into it, and drag the edges to enlarge or reduce the picture size.

    the amount of space you purchase.
