Days of yore

In days gone by I ate and guzzled beer
And was afraid of the reflection in the mirror
I hoovered junk all day, every day
Mud-sucking bottom feeding was my way
Forget a spare tire, mine was two side-tanks
That rose and fell like the tide, all thanks
To the nutrition-less cardboard I had
For breakfast, lunch, and dinner, all bad
Exercise was a word that began with E
In other words, it was for others, not for me
Ah, the head-in-sand wonders of youth
In and endless haze to satisfy my sweet tooth,
And stuff my face with all the fattening foods,
As you can imagine, I was a doughy dude 
Everything was nothing but undisguised lard,
No thought, nutrition be damned, it was barred

Honestly, I think a lot of people don't like to think about nutrition when they are younger. Nicely done,Mike.

88 fingers

When we are young, we feel we are indestructible.
As we get older, the aches and pains pop up more.
Then we get on the meds. Blood pressure, diabetes, etc
We tend to read labels more, sodium, sugar content and such.
I try to do my best, diet, exercise. But lets be honest. We all have to die.
So, suck down that beer, eat four slices of pizza and top it of with some chocolate ice cream.
