I pledge to be cut down on sugar,
I pledge to follow it with utmost rigour,
I pledge to reduce my carb intake,
And drinking plenty of water a habit make,

I gave up non veg eons ago,
But it doesn’t show on my health though,
I don’t drink or smoke,
But somehow abstinence my ill health does stoke,

Now I suffer from BP woes,
Raised uric acid levels and what not goodness knows,

Then I was better when I gorged on all the goodies,
Free of ill health and the abnormalities,

Now I am all round and plump,
Even though I keep away from the meat and drink sump
