Ode to Carbs

I remember the day when my father said,
"Carrots are not your friend!"
(At the time, he was on Atkins you see,
--Oh, Just kill me dead!)
I've tried high protein,
eggs, cheese, meats--all lean,
But as much as I love all that,
Nothing can beat a big stack.
(Of pancakes, that is.)
So I count my points instead.
And at the end of the day when I recall what's been eaten,
bread, pasta, fruit and rice,
That's when I say, Oh dear Carbs,
YOU are what's sweet and nice.

Happy Valentine's Day!
