    'TWAS THE WEEK AFTER CHRISTMAS
    (author unknown)

    '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'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 store (less a walk than a lumber),
    I remembered 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."

    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 is for?

    Unable to giggle, no longer a riot.
    HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL, & TO ALL A GOOD DIET!
