Wednesday Words: Paula’s Prompts

On November 18, 2020, P.T. Wyant posted at ptwyant.com a Wednesday Words prompt involving cheese, a sore foot, and regrets.

This poem was the result…

My foot is sore

I shouldn’t have eaten so much

I’ve gotten heavier, so it’s harder to walk

It’s hard to resist the cheese

I should only eat a little

It’s so easy to overindulge

Have a little more with a little more wine

Wine, chocolate, cheese, it’s so hard to devour them

Gobbling down larger quanties than I should

Drinking enough so I’m left fuzz-brained

Carrying around the other in lumps of unused energy

Together they increase my overall lumpiness

Making my whole body harder to move

A bigger burden for my sore feet

Yet sometimes the world feels like it’s throwing misery at me

2020 left me feeling especially doomed

It feels like the end so why hold back?

It’s hard not to reach for the cheese or the chocolate

Now I’m heavier than I’ve been in a long time

I regret the sore feet

I regret the clothes which no longer fit

Even as I suffer the consequences of my gluttony

I cannot bring myself to regret the cheese.
