Yum! Yum! Mmm! Yummy!

If given a choice
'tween taters or maters,
the spuds I will choose,
the maters will lose.
To cream, bake or boil?
Oh, what a turmoil!
So I fry 'em and eat 'em,
those fries you can't beat 'em.
With ketchup delicious
I'm sure they're nutritious.

I simply love candy,
any kind is just dandy.
If I'm on a diet
I try to not buy it,
but if chocolate I'm offered
and temptingly proffered,
I will not desist it
'cause I can't resist it!

Ice cream is a treat,
so cold and so sweet,
with nuts heavy covered,
in fudge thickly smothered.
Yum-yum! Mmm! Yummy!
Feels good to my tummy.
I must be in heaven!
Yep, this is real livin'.

Some say I am chunky,
in places I'm lumpy.
Must be the good eatin'
to me I am treatin'.
Once had a svelte figger,
but now I am bigger.

Thank goodness for stretchies
to fit all us fleshies!
(Pass the taters, please,
and gimme another
chocolate triple scoop.)
