A DIETER'S LAMENT
(with some apologies to Pam Ayers)
Oh pass me that packet of peanuts,
Toss me that Turkish Delight,
I've been a diet
For two long weeks
And I'm feasting, not fasting tonight!
That creamy croissant that I craved for
Those do-nuts I didn't devour;
The hot buttered scones
That I drooled on
Were haunting me hour after hour.
But at last I have loosened my waistband
By gracefully going without,
So throw me that thing
With the jam and the cream
And here- throw the cottage cheese out!

|Hey Dora, hi to you from Liverpool.
Don't you dare apologise to Pam, she'd be proud of this lament.
Having just consumed two tons of food this weekend, I know just what you mean!
I look forward to reading more of your works.
