On Dispensing Treats at Halloween

How hard is it

To disregard sugar rich chocolate treats

Near the front door

 

Hard

Damned hard

For a recovering chocoholic

 

Nuts and seeds

Fill in

Second stringers off the bench

Playing over their heads

 

Thump

Thump

Thump

Another knock

 

Thanks god, another handful depleted

 

Take more

 

Leave me no temptations

 

But then again

 

A test of resolve

 

Is a test worth taking

If I can overcome that

I might be able to overcome

Other foibles

 

Weaknesses

 

Flaws

 

And seek redemption

In your love
