Mind Over Matter

Can you hear
Your conscience
Ring?
‘Dieting’
It seems
Is a New Year Thing,
As though
There must be
Punishment
For all the Festive Season
Meant.
Time with family
Time with friends
Cheering the good times
Making amends.
Opening all that
Festive fare
Just because
It’s sitting there.
Or, more accurately
Meant to share.
Not to torment
Or despise
Much less, attend to
Individual size.
More to raise a smile or two
Share an anecdote
While we chew…
Then with January comes
Lamentation
Of Bums and tums.
Self-inflicted misery
Licensed to share openly
But
What if we each just kept quiet
No-one
so much as
mentioning
[diet]
?
