My Lenten plan

My beloved tells me the cookies don*t count because they*re not fast food.  Technically... no.  Still.

My Lenten plan
Is still in process.
No fast food between meals
Sounded like a no-brainer
Until the car took
Its own route home
From Domestic ViolenceTraining.
I drove by the McDonald*s
With the six piece Chicken McNuggets
In mind.
With confidence and care
I drove on by,
Returned home to
Girl Scout cookies
Just arrived,
One sleeve opened already,
Six cookies remained.
My Lenten plan
Is still in process.
I did not drive by
The Girl Scout cookies.
They leapt on me
From the kitchen counter.
I swear
I was ambushed.
