A clever young blogger named Kate
Resolved that she’d not stay up late.
So, with that thinking,
Our Kate took up drinking
And, subsequently, also gained weight.

    Our friend Kate is doing just fine
    Seven beers and a bottle of wine
    By drinking ‘till late
    She met her perfect date
    So they’re both now in bed before nine.

      ❤ In a surprisingly beautiful way, you ended my tale.

    I resolve in twenty-twenty-one
    never to stay out in the sun
    I’ll put on factor 20
    of which I have plenty
    and take Vitamin-D by the ton

    To my God I pledge my resolution
    For my sins I request absolution
    To my girl I’ll confess
    That I’ve caused her distress
    Lord, protect me from her retribution

      Oh, I think anyone can poem. There’s ample proof of everyone trying, for example… 😀

    Somehow, I believe, she didn’t think that through.
    Fun, thought provoking, smile inducing
    It might be less expensive to stay up late.

      This is exactly the conclusion we are supposed to come to. 😀

    I love this Chel how you don’t mind I ve added a verse. 💜😊💜😊

    Oh! What on earth can we do?
    Blogger Kate’s an alcoholic it’s true.
    The pounds she’d piled on
    Her following gone
    Her words became abusive and few!

    We all agree we cant wait to see this year through,
    Rest assured, on that I’m of the same mind as you,
    Now perhaps my eyes are causing me trouble
    But your last posts title had me seeing double
    And looking back, entitled to a sense of deja vu?
