Something Sweet


Snickers, Milky Way, M&M's, Mars
Payday, Reese's, Hershey Bars
My Sweet Tooth begs for something to munch
Caramello, Cherry Mash, Valomilk, or Nestle's Crunch.

The sugar bowl stares cold and mean
My Sweet Tooth screams to lick it clean.
Or a Chocolate Chip Cookie would sure hit the spot
But a crusty granola bar is as close as I got.

A steamy cherry pie with ice cream on top
Sweet tooth, Oh Sweet Tooth Why won't you stop.
Can't you see I am back on a diet and the point is quite moot.
Just be thankful for freaking fruit.

Oh Fuzz are you on a diet? I hate the word. I cant drink that damn diet pop...yuck. And I love all these candy bars you have mentioned here. Can you imagine someone NOT liking them? I could live off of junk food....all of that bad stuff is soooo good! And homemade choc chip cookies are the BEST!

Keshi said...

I hate fruit...my deepest condolences to Fuzzy..lol!

Keshi.

You have a way with words, a way with rhyme
I'm sure the temptations will ease with time

hi fuzz
does 'fruit cake' fit into the fruit category?
if it does I could send you some - I seem to have made 6 too many for the wedding - I didn't want to be short ;)

Crazy Dan said...

Come on dude just one Mars bar wont hurt you. But sadly I know the cycle you are going to take. First you will drop alot of weight then you will stop smoking and those to deal with those craving start eating again and thus go back to your orginal weight. You go through such a vicios cycle dear brother.

:P fuzzbox said...

catch: All that you said is too true.

keshi: It isn't that I hate fruit. It's that I love all food.

david: I am sure it will. But it sucks still.

ol'lady: That's a lot of fruitcake.

starbender: I went on Atkins once. I actually gained weight on it.

crazy dan: Such is my life it seems.

Jenna Howard said...

Aww, poor Fuzz.

I think I gained a pound reading this. I at least drooled on my keyboard.

I just had a bag of those Christie's Thinsations. Those weren't chocolate chip cookies. At all. Sigh.

Can I sit beside you and sulk over the loss of all the good foods in life?

Green Eyes said...

Fuzz, you know I just love your poetry!

I'm sitting here being good, eating cantelope, but now, I really want some chocolate! And I was doing so well! Thanks for that! lol

angel, jr. said...

There is no substitution for good ole sugar. Splenda doesn't even come close--and it gives me the trots.

Mimi said...

Skim chocolate milk and Slim a Bear ice cream sanwhiches help me keep my figure and sanity. And I hate to endore Weight Watchers, but their chocolate eclairs are da bomb;)

:P fuzzbox said...

jenna: Sadly there is no substitute for good old fashioned Tollhouse Chocolate Chip Cookies.

green eyes: I luv cantelopes. And the ones from Pecos are the bomb. But nothing quite hits the spot like good old chocalate.

angel, jr: I agree. But it does beat out the pink stuff. That is just plain nasty.

mimi: Thanks for the tips I will have to check out those eclairs.

Ben said...

Yeah but is fruit fulfilling your red blooded needs Fuzz ?

I can just picture you holding your big banana.

I've moved home Fuzz,

I'm doing a joint blog with an American called Will.

Hope you're well.

Does that girl in the pic come with some of the candy? I'm sure you'd be able to work off the calories if she did!

Sar said...

Fruit is nice. Like strawberries, especially if they're dipped in chocolate - yum!

:P fuzzbox said...

ben: I saw that you have moved out of your old digs. I will have to check out your new site and change out the link.

mike: I am sure she could.

sar: I am a sucker for Strawberries dipped in chocolate. Especially white chocolate. Thanks for popping in. I entered your caption contest but I never win those things.

Bruce said...

I need to lose some weight myself. Unfortunately, I have absolutely no will power. Care to give me a kick in the ass to get me started?

Anonymous said...

actually, my favorite sweet and seems to really hit the spot is when I lick the beaters while baking cakes and cookies. I don't think I could ever give that pleasure up.

Happy Blog 1 year Anniversary, fuxx.

Big Pissy said...

Yuuummmm...now I want some warm chocolate chip cookies and cold milk!

good luck with the diet! :)

jane said...

OH MY GAWD Fuzz.......wtf are you torturing me for? I want ALL of that! Every damn single bite of it, you hear me? (okay well then...please save me a smidgen...thanks)

jane said...

ps...I just called Tarzan & threatened him within an inch of his life if he doesn't come home with a pint of Ben & Jerry's Vanilla Caramel Fudge ice cream for me. (actually, I thought of something he wants ((hersheys chocolate syrup)) and gave him that item first, once I knew it was going to the market, I gave him the idle threat)

Thanks for the inspiration ;)

the weirdgirl said...

Good luck on your diet. I have a sweet tooth, too. I've learned to never cut things out, just cut the portion down. That way I can still have my chocolate... and if it's fruit dipped in chocolate then it's almost healthy!

Plus, you know chocolate is full of anti-oxidants, right?

:P fuzzbox said...

bruce: I don't know what I could do? Maybe you should check out some yo' momma jokes, if anything fits, that should do it.

anon: I was wondering if you would show up. Thanks for popping in and letting me know that you are still with us. Be careful and unplug the mixer first. Live and learn as I always say.

big pissy: Have one for me.

jane: That's sneaky. Way to go.

weirdgirl: Chocolate is healthy and now research shows that marijuana reduces the risk of certain cancers. I really need to start being healthier.

Phats said...

God this post made me hungry! I had a milky way tonight it was good

I think jase goes home this week, I hope anyway I can't stand him. I would not have gone on slop for 60 days would you?

:P fuzzbox said...

Phats, Jase is gone. No doubt about it. My prediction George wins HOH and puts up James and Kaysar.

Mike said...

LOL........I can't believe yo watch Big Brother too. I think they should have pt up Mike Boogey in place of Jase.

:P fuzzbox said...

Mike, if the seasick alliance had any sense that is what they would have done but this is the same group of yo-yo's that let the nerd herd run roughshod over their butts. I was amazed at Howie crying like a baby when Chicken George gave his veto speech. Now that was priceless.

ozymandiaz said...

You tryin to put me out of a blog?

:P fuzzbox said...

That would never happen Oz. You are the undisputed master when it comes to Poetry Blogs. Just remember God said so.

LisaBinDaCity said...

The "Skinny Cow" brand makes awesome ice cream sandwiches. Low fat and no added sugar - YUM!!!

:P fuzzbox said...

I tried one Lisa. Not to shabby.
