“THIS AND THAT!”😁

“THIS AND THAT!” a poem 12/24/18 (Monday)

Balancing THIS and THAT?! Well, can you ever really do-it?
Can’t do THAT?-Can’t do THIS?- Call me: Mr. – Nit- -Wit!
THIS says: “Aw, you ain’t hungry!” and “You don’t-need to-eat!”
And your body is THAT, which is sayin’: “How’m-I-goin’-stay-on-my-feet?
If you’re just starving ME all the time?”
You, maybe, need – more rhythm – or rhyme!?
We-can-always get out and work – work-up-an-appetite,
And, then-eat-some-food – and get high as a kite!
OF COURSE, IF YOU’RE R E A L L Y NOT HUNGRY, DON’T EAT; just wait,
But! Don-‘t imagine it’s gonna get probably all that late,
Before your little body’s yearning for some food;
Just-ANYTHING – so your little pookie body won’t brood!
Of course, THIS part of little ol’ you,
Might-then say: “Drop the body; delve-into The-Blue!”
It’s just: a LOVE-HATE kinda state,
We’re in – ain’t bad! Ain’t great,
We’re just HERE, messin’-around,
Hoping Santa SOON – will bound,
In-here-delivering-presents, like Italian Sausage and rolls,
Some steamy, mashed potatoes – with filet of soles!
“No, no!” says Mr. THIS – THAT’s not healthy eatin’ for YOU!
You NEED healthy, lean foods – to be true!”
Then, THAT voice comes – and will say: “Drop-The-Games!
EAT SOME FOOD! Your appetite, it tames!”
It does appear – we better (something) eat,
Or stuff can happen-and-we’ll-lose-sleep,
Or SLEEP SO MUCH, ‘CAUSE WE’VE NO POWER!!
Like Jairus’ little, dead girl, at her Eleventh Hour!*
“They” went to get Jesus – “Please come – or she’ll die!”
“All right!” He said, with a glimmer in his eye!
And, when He got there, he said: “She’s OK;
She’s just a bit hungry – FEED HER SOMETHING – – – TODAY!
A little food’s – just the thing for her!”
And, sure enough – after-a-bite, she-started to PURR!!

Oh, and He said: “When she’s done – have her wash the dishes!
And – tell her to get outside a bit more – to fulfill her Christmas wishes!!” πŸ™‚ – Ho, ho –
