ballooning to enormous proportions
not a difficult proposition
eating between meals
getting best deals
of eating pleasure
while engrossed at the computer

clutching big beef burgers
for inspiration but ended in clutter

fastest way for accomplishment
was to do one thing at a time
(44 words)

De's at d'Verse's Quadrille #29
and to include the word - balloon

  1. Just looking at that burger makes me sick. No wonder everyone is ballooning out.

  2. I agree that it is best to do one thing at a time. Multitasking doesn't work well for me, not that I don't nibble or have a cup of coffee nearby when I'm on the computer.

    As always, great word-smithing, Hank.

  8. When will the excess stop??? I remember when a quarter-pounder was quite satisfying! Love your poem, by the way!

  9. I think I'll stick to one task at a time and leave that burger on my never to eat list.

  12. Wow, that is one big burger, who eats that? I know they have a Big Mac Junior, just saying it might be a better option.

  17. Good thing I'm almost done with lunch, and it doesn't involved a double-decker burger! What a fun poem.
