Sugar, You Temptress

Sugar you temptress, you hide everywhere
In many a form, you never fair
You sneak in my life like a thief in the night
Stealing my health with every sweet bite

Making me long for your taste every day
From the moment I wake I’m your gullible prey
A substance that’s banned is what you should be
With red and bold letters for innocents to see

There is not a food where your charms are not found
Queen of addictions, you should have been crowned
More forms than a demon you use to deceive
You change your appearance to make me believe

Names you have many, they’re part of you guise
And after so long you still can surprise
Liquids and solids and all in between
Your arrogant invasion has always been keen

In every known texture you’ve come to exist
Creamy or hard, too many to list
Breakfast, lunch, dinner, you always control
I feel the obsession, you’re taking a toll

No matter the food, you always are there
You’ve caught me at times in your devilish snare
I’ve seen you appear on some labels three times
In a court you’d be guilty of three separate crimes

And so I’ve decided that I’m waging war
Against your seduction, you always want more
Sugar, you temptress, I’m watching for you
And the very next time that you make your debut
