SWEET ENEMY

You call in darkness and in light,

Day and night, morning and evening,

And we always seem to answer.

 

You appear in all colors and shapes,

To appeal to people of all kind,

And we seem to respond.

 

Why torture our souls,

In the disguise of satisfying us,

Why pull us to you,

When all we want to do is pull away?

 

You shorten the lives of people,

Men, women, children in all.

 

You give us so much,

And yet take so much.

Food.........you are our sweet enemy.
