I prefer to eat dessert first!
Why should I take a chance?
There may not be any left, that’s the worst,
and I find there’s no recompense,
when it’s gone, it’s gone,
to be seen no more.
Not even a smell lingers on
like you had before.
Besides, dessert first will help my weight.
No one wants to be skinny.
Then I’ll know how much room on my plate
to leave for veggies and fruit, if any.
At a buffet I’m hardly able,
when they push and shove, to be first in line.
So I start at the other end of the table
where the pie and the cake soon are mine.
