All alone, perched in a flat,
My friends all say,” You are too fat.
Come on” I hear, ” It’s not too late!
Treat yourself, and lose some weight”
I’ll show them, those who take the rise,
And scorn my gross, indulgent size-
Next year year I’ll be smart and trim,
Attractive sexy and very slim.
Fibre, calories, diets galore,
Making fortunes from the weighty poor.
Classes? Hypnosis? How do I chose
The most effective way to lose?
The slim and lucky ones advise:
“All you need is exercise.”
Exposed by those to harassment,
Uncaring of my embarrassment.
Then at last it starts to click-
The weight reducing scheme is quick!
And now those jealous friends will dig,
“You were more cuddly when you were big!”
