Guilty Pleasures?

What the heck is a guilty pleasure?
Ditto a guilt-free treat?
If you enjoy it why not treasure
Every breath and beat?
Don’t let some skinny lifestyle guru
Or a plastic trout pout face
Convince you that contrition’s due
Or rob you of joy and grace
Eat the doughnut, drink the beer
Do the happy stuff
It isn’t long that we are here
Don’t make the journey tough
Pleasure isn’t puritanical
Skinny ain’t the holy grail
Let’s celebrate those who are less tyrannical
Go out grinning and wagging our tails
In the end I’m here to say
Celebrate living. Every day
