Bon Appetite Blues

A bacon egg and cheese biscuit
Is what I’d like the most
Instead I have some melon
and a piece of melba toast

Why can’t I have a Danish
Or piece of pumpkin pie
Without having to worry
About triglyceride

At times it’s such a struggle
To keep this frame of mind
Raiding the refrigerator
for the treats I would find

Waking in the morning
Sometimes it is quite close
Hit the bathroom running
From a fiber overdose

Reading all the labels
Trying to shop smart
What I thought a staple
Is not even on the chart

Walking down the aisle
My taste buds would agree
All that seems appealing
Is neither sugar nor fat free
