Another Diet?
 
Weight Watchers, Atkins
I’ve tried them all
At 5Foot 2inches
I’m not very tall
 
I try not to eat
Too much each day
Why won’t the weight come off
To the scales I say
 
A bar of chocolate
I’ll just have one
No lunch today
I’ll have to starve
 
It still won’t shift
I’ll try something new
The latest fad diet
That’s what I’ll do!
 
Breakfast a Shake
Lots of water
By Eleven I’m hungry
A lamb to the slaughter
 
I see the chocolate
And again I’m lost
I’ll start tomorrow
Some more toast?
 
Just one slice with butter
That’s all I’ll have
No dinner for me
I’ll have to starve!
 
I know the answer
I’ll just stop dieting
This is me
The way I am
 
Like me or hate me
I just don’t care
I cannot diet
It’s really not fair
 
I want to be thin
I want to be fit
But I’m just me

So that is it!
