Ode to Gestational Diabetes

They say that the key to beating one addiction is to replace that action with something positive and healthy.  So, since I can't eat sugar (and there's sugar in, like, everything) I've decided to start writing poetry as a means of channeling my frustrations. 

Ready to be done...
Chicken, veggie overload
Might kill for a pie.


Cookies are sweet,
Brownies are too.
I'd love
crème brûlée...
Can that be made from tofu?


I've loved dessert since childhood,
and eaten it more than I should.
Now my diet's just mean,
and I'm so sick of greens!
This baby?  It'd better be good.

 Oh yeah, this is going to be a long ten weeks.
