The Diet

The People's Friend Special - - CONTENTS -

by El­iza Bar­ret

Each

year there are new kinds of di­ets to try – I’ve done them all, over the years. Each fresh one seems such a good plan at the time, But in­evitably ends up in tears!

I’ve tried buy­ing a dress two sizes too small – It still hangs in the wardrobe un­worn; The row­ing ma­chine and the ex­er­cise bike Now stand in the garage for­lorn.

High carbs or low fat, count­ing the calo­ries, Fast­ing for days – I will try it! My fam­ily say, ‘Why not try just eat­ing less In­stead of some fancy new diet?’

Be­cause ev­ery­one’s tired of my crazes and fads, I vow, for my fam­ily’s sake, That I will sim­ply try some self-dis­ci­pline (Right af­ter that last piece of cake!)
