Iím salivating now; just gottaí have some.
Iím cooking dinner; tasting as I go.
Now I donít need a meal. Iím full. I know!
Iím lying in bed trying to sleep
Counting rich candies instead of sheep.
Recalling cookies, chocolate chip of course,
Are hidden in the freezer. Will I have remorse?
I just canít forget them, so golden and sweet.
Iím off to thaw my micro waved treat.
Iím starting to wonder as these episodes proceed,
Is my snacking about hunger or lustful food greed?
To the gym I go; extra pounds are upon.
Much exercise Ďtwill take before they are gone.
To the Lord I go, with my guilt and sin,
Dropping to my knees, I repent to Him.
He gently forgives, but chastens me well.
I need to avoid lustful food and its smell!
