Nutritionists’ Lists

They want me to write lists

I tell them alright; no problem

They’re probably right

After all, they’re just wanting to help

Doing a job, looking after my health

So then, I get to thinking

And I say to myself; what will be next?

I told them I would, but really I’d rather write poems

Or stories for children, of goblins and gnomes

I’d rather write love letters to my beautiful wife

Or write to my children of how I miss them and can’t wait to get home

What if I wrote of the hate of some men?

And of what we could do if only love were a plan

I want to write about learning to fly

How my heart loves to sing to the music l like

I want to write about Barack Obama

We were born in the same year

And we both lost our mamas

Don’t get me going on him

I love that man like a brother

I’d write about blaming all of this world’s ills on “the other”

I can write about so many things

But I won’t write about everything I eat

Guess I will have to write those nutritionists a note

  1. I am so glad you are being reborn my friend.  It is a tough birth for sure maybe longer than that other nine month one. but man what  you are bringing your  sharing is daring and caring…..This poem made me cry, laugh, smile I think that is a helluva good poem.  Thanks so much…
