    Default After Holiday Diet GDG

    T'was the day after Christmas, and all through the house
    Not a darn thing 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 scales there arose such a number!
    When I walked to the store (less a walk than 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 that I'd never said, 'No thank you, please.'
    As I dressed myself up, 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 fruit cake, each cracker, and chip,

    Every last bit of food that I like must be banished
    'til all the unwanted ounces have vanished!
    I won't have a cookie, not even a lick...
    I'll just have to chew on a 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!
