it doesn’t make me a bad person…NaPoWriMo/GloPoWriMo Challenge Day 27

it doesn’t make me a bad person…

what some call guilty pleasures, I have done without a thought
day long movie marathons, in pj’s, eating chocolat
I’ll have dessert, even if it tips the scales a tad
no tinge of guilt, no remorse; I refuse to feel bad

who made the rules that said I couldn’t have a taste of cake
thank you but no thanks I’ll be regifting that crass keepsake
oh don’t be such a wuss, you know, I know you’ve done it too
I set the phone on mute and screen the calls as they come through

hit the snooze and hunker down, sleeping in ’til after noon
put off to the last minute things, then lie they’ll be done soon
before you dare to judge me and chastise me for my flaws
its fair that I remind you none of this is set in law

pleasures stolen now and then won’t send a soul to hell
lightening up a bit might be a good thing, who can tell?
if a thing makes you feel guilty, remember you are free
indulge yourself, no regrets, and embrace your joie de vivre!


A review of my so-called flaws for today’s NaPoWriMo/GloPoWriMo Challenge Day 27: write a poetic review of something that isn’t normally reviewed. For example, your mother-in-law, the moon, or the year 2020 (I think many of us have some thoughts on that one!)
