    "Twas the month after Christmas,
    and all through the house

    Nothing would fit me.
    not even a blouse.

    The cookies I'd nibbled,
    the eggnog I'd taste
    At the holiday parties
    had gone to my waist.

    When I got on the scale
    there arose such a number!
    When I walked to the store
    less a walk than a lumber.

    I'd remember the marvelous
    meals I'd prepared;
    The gravies and sauces
    and beef nicely rared,

    The punch and the candy,
    the bread and the cheese
    and the way I'd not said,
    "No thank you, please."

    As I dressed myself in
    my husband's old shirt
    And prepared once again
    to do battle with dirt...

    I said to myself,
    as I only can
    "You can't spend a winter
    disguised as a man!"

    So ... away with the last
    of the sour cream dip,
    Get rid of the fruit cake,
    every cracker and chip.

    Every last bit of food
    that I like must be banished
    "Till all the additional
    ounces have vanished.

    I won't have a cookie
    not even a lick.
    I'll only chew
    on a long celery stick.

    I won't have hot biscuits,
    or corn bread, or pie,
    I'll munch on a carrot
    and quietly cry.

    I'm hungry, I'm lonesome,
    and life is a bore...
    But isn't that what
    January is for?

    Unable to giggle,
    no longer a riot,
    Happy New Year to all,
    and to all a good diet!
