Weight for Xmas

Read the scales

How have you done

Lost a pound

Target achieved

Or failure and another week 

Of guilt at what you eat

Watch your weight

Is the cry

From those who want – 

You to comply

Don’t give in

Don’t succumb

It’ll only lead 

To weigh put on

So read the scale

A pound put on

No more pleasure

Foods not fun

Life of misery

Mealtimes come

Oh bugger it

If it’s meant to be

Stuff the diet

Pass the chocolate

I’m going to be me

Where’s the biscuits

Pass the wine

It’s that time

Pass the cake

What’s for tea

What will be 

Will have to be
