Casually Consuming Crisps

(Note for my US friends, crisps are potato chips)

As I was out walking, I happened to meet
Someone casually eating some crisps in the street.
Now, that’s not remarkable, I hear you all say,
For it’s something we witness almost every day!
Well, that may be true, but I think you may find
Diabetes brings thoughts of a quite different kind.
The thoughts may be angry: how dare she do that!
Just stuffing her face at the drop of a hat!
The thoughts may be jealous: I wish it was me,
Enjoying those crisps so entirely carefree!
Or, maybe some sadness: I remember the time
When I would eat crisps, oh the taste was sublime!
Now that one simple act that the girl took for granted,
For me, is a sin that must now be recanted.
The carbs in the crisps would send my blood sugar high –
It’s hard to resist, but I really must try!
But once in a while, I may admit defeat,
And casually consume some crisps in the street!


Cute poem! You can also think about how bad those crisps are for her. Greasy and too salty! :0

But I think the same when I see someone getting thick crusty bread. :slight_smile:

Duck, I hope you are watching those Doritoes! :slight_smile:

haha i love it

LOL! I love this =)
Something I miss…football season is on =(

I will allow myself a portion of crisps from time to time… but, you know… I really scout the bigger portion ones for the carb count. lol Munchos are my favorite, so far. So airy, crispy, and light. :smiley:
