The Diet Riot - Poem by L. M. Flowers

To diet is a riot, on a diet this week off again the next;
That is the craze of the nineties.
Get that Slim-Fast
Drink it down and make it last and
Forget your eating habits of the past.
Richard Simmons says stretch and jump
Your way to a slim waist line,
My my, aren't we doing just fine!
Now, there is Jenny Craig who promises that
If you purchase her food and eat it good
You'll lost weight just like you should!
And then there is the Cyclone Zone
A cross country trainer and that's a no brainer.
Finally, from liquid drinks, jumping jacks,
Packaged food and exercise machines.
I still say that to diet is a riot!
