A Rapid Rhyme About Poor Lifestyle Choices For Which I’m Making The Current Pandemic A Scapegoat

Oh we’re still in lockdown three
Yearning to be free
But you won’t find me whinging
Instead I’ve started binging
Boxsets, booze and food
Whatever takes my mood
I’m looking quite a state
I’m more than overweight
But it’s hard to really care
If I’m not going anywhere
And since I’m staying here
I’ll have another beer
If I’ve had too much to drink
It’s best not to overthink
I’m not yet an alcoholic
Though I have touch of colic
But while life is such a bore
I might as well eat more

    Set that to music and it could be a morale boosting anthem of these times.

    It’s cold and depressing, I know. My daughter in Edinburgh is just LOVING feeling the walls cosily closing in, so sympathies. But a line or two of advice;
    Eat, drink merrily, spread and lounge about,
    But oh, my friend, beware the dreaded gout.

      I’m more than a little concerned that that ship has sailed

    whilst you gorge food, a thought to harrow
    as you grow wide, the gorge grows narrow

      Not much chance of that on any level I’m afraid

    Bibendum Ergo Sum
    I drink Therefore I am
    But I don’t fret the tomb
    I won’t fit beyond the jamb

    Laugh, It keeps the monsters away

    Well, I’m getting a puppy. I like to think a puppy is a nice healthy outlet in a pandemic. I won’t be over-eating or over-drinking. Everything will be all about the puppy. I guess I won’t be over-sleeping either with an 8 week old puppy, but… that’s beside the point.

      Maybe I should get a puppy, but I already have a toddler so I think it may not be a great solution for me or the puppy.
