Goodbye, Coke.

Yesterday,
I broke up with you. 
Our co-dependent affair 
started years ago, and
all you have done 
is cause me woe.  

You caused problems 
with sugar in my blood, 
you wreaked havoc
with swings in my mood. 

Years ago I switched 
from sugar to aspartame, 
but most of my symptoms
have stayed the same. 

Coca-cola, we are through,
Diet Coke and Coke Zero, 
Goodbye to you. 

I have no regrets 
about getting you 
out of my way, 

except that I should 
have taken this step
many, many, many
years 
before 
yesterday.
