An addict am I, I am not proud
The can keeps calling me.
My brain tells me itís not allowed
The will does not agree

I make it through the morning time
Training, teaching, toiling
When lunch comes round I sit to dine
My insides start to boiling.

To the fridge I go my choice to make
Deciding, deflecting, declaring
Water it is! I will not break
I turn away despairing

The kids are loud, the list is long
Caring, cuddling, cleaning
Iím tired now, my will is gone
Maybe Iíll have one this evening

The day is done, itís time for me
Relaxing, reading, resting
As I sit, I no longer see
A reason for the testing

My husband asks if I want one
I quickly tell him yes
My will is now completely gone
I know Iíve failed the test

The first sip hits my throat and stings
I have no other care
My Mountain Dew is comforting
None other can compare

I tip the green can up and drink
Savoring every drop
My resolve is gone, I slowly sink
When will I ever stop?

I know some of those "Dew" addicts. This is great!

My wife is a Diet Dew addict. It's just been horrible. We're trying to find a good 12-step program in our area.

Great entry.

May God bless.

Sincerely,
