The Diet

A poem for y'all.


I have been put on a diet-
No more fat or lard.
Just a thin slice of meat
And a grape
For me.

Or maybe a little kiwi.

For He likes to train,
To train my likes,
To change my appetite.

Mind and intellect,
Soul and sinew,
Trained anew.

Huzzah! Hopkinsesque wordplay! I very much like soul and sinew/trained anew.
