Day 30 (of 30 days) -- NaPoWriMo -- I Finished !!! (one a day for 30 days)

Nibbles Excessive

Thin little stick of sweet
Candy treat for sugar starved
One nibble at a time

Those love bites are repaid
Potassium shortage
 Brings about heart problems

Licorice glut bitten back

     - I am linked with Anmol (HA) in the Imaginary Garden at http://withrealtoads.blogspot.com/2019/04/the-tuesday-platform-frontier-of.html?m=1 
     - Anmol's suggestions, "Write a poem in praise of a source of inspiration — your muse, your life, your own web of thoughts, your dreams or sleeplessness, your daily tasks, a favourite artist or musician, nature and environment, et al. Also, let's keep it between 30-60 words — there is a certain beauty in brevity after all."  I have 30 words plus two for the title, total of 32 words.
     - I used to be a Licorice glut myself but since the FDA has issued a warning of the dangers of "Black licorice contains the sweetening compound glycyrrhizin, which can decrease potassium levels in the body, according to the US Food and Drug Administration. That temporary potassium deficiency can cause abnormal heart rhythms, high blood pressure, and even congestive heart failure. Oct 31, 2017" from a Google search of "licorice health issues."
     - Obviously I do not have a package of licorice candy for picture taking, this is Red Chewy stick picture has lots of regular sugar and is made by the leading distributer of Licorice.  I have not tasted Licorice in about 15 years.
     - and with NaPoWriMo Day 30 at http://www.napowrimo.net/day-thirty-5/

    Sometimes, sweet can be so deadly... quite literally, too.
