Ode to a Peanut Butter Cup

Oh, Peanut Butter Cup!
How you tempt me;
Your smooth peanut butter
Covered in creamy milk chocolate
Call out "Eat Me!"

It’s been six weeks;
Six long weeks since this diet began.
My resolve weakens before
Your gooey goodness.

Oh, Peanut Butter Cup!
You don’t fight fair.
From the tips of my ears
To the bottom of my ample bottom;
Every molecule of my being
Is drawn to you.

The crinkle of your wrapper teases.
It slips off with such ease.
That first whiff of chocolate rushes my nose.
No! No! I must resist!

Oh, Peanut Butter Cup!
Sitting there on your cardboard tray.
How innocent you look.

But not for long.
