A Poem on the Website of
the Red Dirt Writers Society

The diet-er
by Beth Stephenson (Mar 2013)

I have kisses in my bedroom,

Blisses in my car,

I keep Snickers in my kitchen

Jellies in a jar

Russell Stover is my boyfriend,

Grandma was a See

Jolly Rancher is my husband

Grandpa’s a Hershey


I eat donuts for my breakfast

Chips and dip for lunch

My dinner’s something deep-fried

But, I have a hunch

That somebody’ll laugh at me

Thinking it’s a joke

When I peruse a menu

And order Diet Coke.
