Another holiday poem

by Laurie Kolp

I love
you sweet
holiday food
with your sugar
cookies shaped into
bells and Santa Claus,
reindeer, Christmas trees,
homemade powder-sugared icing
dyed red and green, a long afternoon
of sheer delight you bring; and creamy rich
fudge that melts in my watering mouth each time
I bite into your irresistible flesh, you leave me
always begging and craving more, more, more unwanted
poundage begins in my hips I feel them expanding
with each passing day. Oh, sweet holiday food because of your tempting delight my seat has more padding, no more cushions do I need as I
sit and eat.
