Chocolate Deceit



Chocolate deceit,
nicest way to beat
depression;
buy ahead and keep
in refrigerator,
anticipating
onset of melancholy.

Jeans planned
for wear Thursday in Hobart,
Tasmania, were
too tight for comfort;
chocolate in-hand-formulated
backup plan achieves
degree of relief.

Will be too cold for vanity
anyway! That is not to say
one needn’t worry about
being overweight,
but how many blocks
of chocolate equate
to a pair of jeans?
