The extra inch
On waist and thighs
Said it was time
To exercise.

Then leotards
The thing to wear
So I went out
And bought a pair.

I bought a bunch
Of diet grub.
And then I went
And joined a club.

My group already
In the gym,
I’d change my clothes
And go join them.

What exercise!
I rolled and turned
Contortions that
My body learned.

With foot pulled up
Behind my neck,
The cramps and strain
Left me a wreck.

What seemed like days
Of pull and push,
First on my knees
Then on my tush.

The leotards
I’d picked with care,
I should have bought
A larger pair.

Well, finally
I’d got them on.
Now where had all
The others gone?
