A Seasonal Ditty.
By Bernie Bell
(Other antacids are available)
I shouldn’t have had that cheesecake
I’d had more than enough to eat.
Now, here I am, lying a-wake
I just cannot sleep.
I’ve spent some time tossing and turning
I’ve tried breathing steady and slow
But nothing would settle the torment
So, off to the kitchen I go
To munch on an old-faithful – Rennie
And soon the ease started to flow.
The fire goes out
Nice and steady
Soon, soothed is my burning heart
And I’m thinking that maybe the next time
I’ll stick to some plain apple tart!
