@Marbles   ^^^^ l Iike that quote.

lt is similar to one my father always said, "lf you want to know what someone is like, give them some money."

My corollary to this is: " He -my father- was right. 'Money destroys people'. Just look at the self-destruction among lottery winners."

Losing Pieces

Talked my head off
Worked my tail off
Cried my eyes out
Walked my feet off
Sang my heart out
So you see, 
There’s really not much left of me.

- Shel Silverstein

salam,

More important than what we believe is how we live. 

If certain beliefs lead to exclusiveness, self-righteousness, fanaticism, it is the vanity of the "believer" that is the problem...

The format is the same as confession in the catholic church.

 

Bless me Doctor, l have sinned

Since seeing you last week, the "Spirit" had the will to win.

But, "ah", the flesh was weak.

You warned me that l must deprive my appetites

and somehow strive to conquer these compulsive drives

To eat what now upsets me.

You told me all the foods to ban

You gave me pills* to aid "the Plan".

l still outweigh my own sedan.

And so l must confess me.

On Monday l awoke at eight.

Determined to reduce my weight.

Dry toast and tea is all l ate.

Then Satan came to test me.

The pills you gave me felt so great

l felt l ought celebrate.

l made French Toast and licked the plate.

Bless me doctor, bless me.

On Tuesday, as l lay in bed,

l still had 60 pounds to shed.

But thoughts of cheesecake filled my head

and started to enslave me.

"The Devil can't trick me." l said,

"l want that cheesecake"

but instead, l ate three loaves of diet bread.

Save me, someone, save me.

On Wednesday, l went quite insane,

At 8 l switched on Jack Lalanne**

By 9, l was a knot of pain.

And Satan came to snare me.

By 10,  l couldn't stand the strain ...

l dialed a famous chicken chain.

"Send three with malts and three more plain"

Spare me, colonel***, spare me.

But Thursday brought the worst disgrace,

On Thursday l was very base.

l looked the Devil in the face.

l should have known he'd trap me.

l got into a kind of race -which l soon won in easy grace.

The race was in a pizza place.

Slap me, someone, slap me!

And now, it's Friday and l'm back

A saturated**** cul de sac.

A hopeless munch-o-maniac.

But nothing can suppress me

So, put some fresh pills in my sack.

l'm ready for the Fiend's***** attack.

But while l wait  l'II have a snack.

Pass the bread, and bless me.

 

------Victor Buono,   American actor, as recited on Johnny Carson, 13January1978

* diet pills, "the Plan" is the planned diet

**Jack LaLanne had a national fitness/exercise program in the 1950s, 60s and 70s.

***colonel refer to Colonel Sanders, Kentucky Fried Chicken

****saturated =saturated fats

*****Fiend's = Shatan's

happy wife happy life

To have your "happy wife" requires very "deep pockets".  ---Hasan the Hospice

"deep pockets" is American idiom for having a lot of money.

Hospice also means destitute.
