Have you ever noticed?
Am I the only one?
When wanting to avoid
That's when temptations seem to come?

I'm working on my weight
And keeping my mouth shut
But sharp words keep on escaping
And too much food makes fat my butt

If I try to start the day
With a goal to stay up-beat
Broken cars and leaky toilets
Make me soon admit defeat

I think that I should try
Avoidance in a way that's clever
But as I sit here thinking
It's an impossible endeavor

What if I avoided
Certain money-making tasks?
Would I then become quite tempted
With heavy buckets full of cash?

I guess it's food for thought
Something for me to think about
I won't avoid the use of brain
It's one thing I can't do without!

  2. I'm all for the buckets of money....let me know if your theory works! :)

  3. Hmmm. . .trying to stay away from money to get buckets full of cash. . .interesting, but doubtful, huh? Good idea, though. You always make me smile with your unexpected little twist like that at the end of your poems.

  4. Very cute! Makes me smiles! Happy Friday!

  5. Boy I don't know how I missed this one! Good thing it popped up again. :)

  6. I love it! Nice poem. I'm glad I found it through mr. linky - whatever that is :)
