    cambridge diet

    'Twas the month after Christmas, and all through the house,
    Nothing would fit me, not even a blouse.
    The biscuits I'd nibbled, the champagne I'd taste,
    All the holiday parties had gone to my waist.

    When I got on the scales there arose such a number!
    When I walked to the shops (less a walk,more a lumber).
    I'd remember 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, 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 all Summer 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,
    'Til all the additional ounces have vanished.
    I won't have a biscuit - not even a lick.
    I'll want only to chew on a long celery stick.
    I won't have hot scones, or cake, or fruit 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 laugh, no longer a riot.
    Happy New Year to all and to all a good diet!
