T'was the night before Christmas

    A Christmas poem for my lady friends...

    T'was 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 had to 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 than a lumber),
    I'd remember the marvelous 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 only I 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,
    'til 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 is for?
    Unable to giggle, no longer a riot.
    Happy New Year to all and to all a good diet!
