My dear Diet Coke,
You taste so delicious;
so refreshing and so bubbly.
You seem like a necessity,
whether with a salad for lunch
or alongside french fries and junk.
You were always there for me too,
when I was sleepy, studying for a test,
or taking a fun road trip.
But I feel like you lied to me,
or at least didn’t tell me the truth
about the risk of heart disease, diabetes,
If I keep you around, it won’t be good
for my health nor my waistline.
Though I’ll love you forever,
I have to let you go;
so goodbye, good riddance to you:
