I start the New Year with good intention,
I resolve not to do food intervention,
I resolve not to make carrot sticks a habit,
With the excuse that I am not a rabbit!
At the holiday spread I firmly try,
Everything, including two kinds of pie.
As I gobble another piece of pie,
Momentary guilt prods good intention,
I adjust my will and I intensely try,
Celery stick and carrot intervention.
I nibble like a dedicated rabbit!
Determined not to indulge my food habit.
I will train myself to court healthy habit,
To desire apples and spinach pie,
To bend wayward will like the ears of a rabbit,
To conform to my culinary intention,
To common sense, healthy intervention,
I'll strive for the disciplined, dietary try!
For a time I take the dietary try,
Then temptation destroys my weak new habit,
Temptation stages drastic intervention,
Temptation stronger than pumpkin pie.
Chocolate cheesecake destroys every good intention,
I eat cheesecake like a lettuce starved rabbit.
I'll leave the lettuce with the lettuce starved rabbit,
I won't pretend will power, I won't even try,
Curb chocolate cheesecake is not my intention,
I love my chocolate cheese cake habit.
There isn't a possible piece of pie,
That would work for a cheesecake intervention.
Ice cream won't work for an intervention,
Banished is the lettuce starved role model rabbit,
No cherry or any other kind of pie,
Will remotely make me desire to try,
To give up my chocolate cheesecake habit,
I claim no New Year’s Resolution intention.
I claim no New Year's Resolution intention,
Of resolving my chocolate cheesecake habit
I won't even pretend I want to try!
