A Rapid Rhyme About Breakfast

Tis said that breakfast is important
I don’t know if that’s true
But I know before I’ve had it
My faculties are few

I can’t function til I’ve had it
In one of it’s many guises
My heart says eggs and bacon
But muesli’s what my head advises.

And though my head’s advice
Is for the benefit of my heart
My head rarely wins the fight
When I need my day to start

Life’s too short is my belief
To be sensible when I awake
I can’t get on board with porridge
When I could be eating pancake

And though my life may be shorter
For my poor breakfast choices
When my morning meal is tasty
Then my heart truly rejoices

    oh that this too too solid flesh should melt
    when bacon’s putteth in the pan
    In truth I’ll need a bigger belt
    or forgo streaky for some leaner ham
    let this the question be
    Muesli or not Muesli

    Why is it that all the things we really enjoy aren’t good for us? There’s obviously a sadistic streak in whatever force designed us.

      It is sadly true. But a good breakfast will help to cheer us up.

      That’s the kind of short term thinking that helps me get out of bed in the mornings!

    Yeah, dragging ones bleary-eyed self out of bed only to face a plain gag-inducing yogurt and an unsweetened cuppa is a mugs game.
    A cup of treacly sweet triple Hot-shot coffee and a plate of pancakes marinating in maple syrup? Now you can count on starting the day with a smile AND an uptick in your calories and cholesterol. Off to work in a sugar rush.

      You can’t truly be healthy unless you’re happy.

    My favourite meal is all-day breakfast, as long as there’s bacon:-) Also, what goods is that locksmith donating? Should I contact him? Seems legit, lol.

      Perhaps I was too hasty to move him to my spam folder. But yes all-day breakfast is the best of all the meals
