Over-Eating. Brian Wins the Challenge



This weeks theme 'over-eating' was set by Brian.  What chance did I have?


I'm afraid I've a confession to make

I've done no preparation for this theme

I should have been gorging myself all the week

I've gone let down my Rhymers Team


It's OK for Brian to set theme

He had plenty of left-over pud

And there's pheasant, ham, turkey and chicken

Which he polished off, quick as he could


I'm sure that by now he's quite bloated

(And all for the sake of a poem)

I congratulate him for his over-eating

To make this theme a success, and to show 'em


My draft poem's gone, torn in tatters

Not worth the paper I wrote it on

I think I'll sit back watch Brian de-bloat

And declare this theme challenge - he's won

Brian - I'm worried you might have developed a Binge Eating Disorder.  This girl seems to offer a sure-fire cure. She doesn't say it works for guys.  No matter.  Just re-program your brain.  Free E book And Smartphone App thrown in.   Sorted

I am afraid I am suffering from metaphysical indigestion. I might give this one a miss.

Good effort Don. Not much leftover pud in my house...my wife doesn't allow it!
