Daily Prompt: By Heart

Check today’s daily prompt here!

You’re asked to recite a poem (or song lyrics) from memory — what’s the first one that comes to mind? Does it have a special meaning, or is there another reason it has stayed, intact, in your mind?

When I was in high school, we had to write a poem and my teacher liked mine so much that I ended up reciting it an unreasonable number of times. Now, whenever poetry gets mentioned, I can’t help but internally recite this poem that I wrote a decade ago:

French Fries

French fries make you fat

But what is the matter with that?

What if it were weird to be thin,

and cool to have more than one chin

People would say that you are “hot”,

because skinny, you are not

You would eat and eat and eat

Until you could no longer see your feet

Then you would want eat some more

because it is attractive to not fit out your door

No one would be ashamed and cry,

So go ahead, eat another fry.
