A lament re a Writer's Cramp prompt. Once again, Summer is here, and I'm not ready.
         Summer is here with heat and sun.
         I must bare all to join the fun.
         Breath held, gut clenched, I pull, wriggle
         bathing suit taut, folds, and jiggle.
         Spandex stretched, seams strain and protest.
         Winter weight wedged from butt to breasts.
         For sun protection, prying eyes,
          a long shirt hangs past snow-white thighs.
         Twisting by the pool on a chair,
          I try to lounge with failing flair.
         My skin is slick, my face a'flush
         while vinyl webbing traps my tush.
         I can't resist. I start to dream.
          My cravings scream for cold ice cream.
         Damn the calories, sneaky cheats.
         They lie, mislead, yet seem so sweet.
         Summer is here, another one.
         Sigh, why did I my diet shun? ( 18 lines )
