For the Duration Diet

My Creative Process class includes an assignment to create something during each of the next 25 days (35 in all).  Many years have past since I wrote poems on a regular basis--I was in my 20's when I did so (I'm now 70).  My project will be to write a short poem each day and post it on this blog. I hope you will find them interesting. 

For the Duration Diet

Today I begin a diet
That some will call unhealthy
Let them caution all they please
This diet is for me
One good meal a day is all I need
That's what the doctor said
So with a balanced meal at noon
I add one diet shake mornings and evenings too
The greater risk as it applies to me
Is a beached-whale's protruding obesity.
