Shoulder Squabble (Devil’s Food Cake)

Shoulder Squabble

 

There are two devils on my shoulders

Thinking that they know what’s best,

And they get in little battles,

And never give me any rest.

 

“You can eat it! It is good!

It’s nutritious! (unlike wood)

Full of vitamins and stuff,

You can never have enough!”

 

“Don’t you dare!” the other claims,

“It will only rob your veins

Of the things that you need most!

(Otherwise, your life is toast!)”

 

So while they squabble over me,

I ditch them very carefully,

and eat the cake so quietly.

 

Neither devil is aware,

And I move on without a care.

 -M.M.
