    'Twas the week after Christmas, and all through the house
    Nothing would fit me, not even a blouse.
    The cookies I’d nibbled, the eggnog I did taste
    At the holiday parties had gone to my waist.
    When I got on the scales there arose such a number!
    When I walked to the store (less a walk…. more a lumber).
    I remembered the marvellous meals I’d prepared:
    The gravies and sauces and beef nicely rared,
    The wine and the rum balls, the bread and the cheese
    And the way I’d never said “No thank you,” but “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 only I can
    “You can’t spend the winter disguised as a man!”
    So – away with the last of the sour cream dip,
    Get rid of the fruitcake, 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 want only to 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’s for?
    Unable to giggle, no longer a riot,
    Happy New Year to all and to all a good diet!
