The Month After Christmas!

Twas the month after Christmas
And all thru the house
Nothing would fit me -- not even a Blouse
The cookies I'd nibbled -- the egg nog I'd taste
At the Holiday Parties had gone to my waist
When I got on the scales there rose 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 - the candy -- the bread and the cheese
And the way I'd NOT said -- No thank you please ---
SO away went the last of the sour cream dip --
Get rid of the fruit cake -- every cracker & 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 to chew on a celery stick
I won't have hot biscuits or even 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 & to all a good DIET!!!

Now doesn't this just ring too true for most of us? The really sad thing is that in my house we eat the left overs all the month of January too! "Waste not want not" you know!
