The High Price of Calories
A slim and trim dietitionist
married a strict nutritionist.
Predictably it took its course –
infidelity followed by divorce.
He accused her, quite irate,
of affairs with a carbohydrate
whose name she had not given
but the talk was he was Italian
(it was immaterial anyway,
her weight was plain as day.)
To these charges she fired back
with a short but vitriolic attack
pointing out his lack of self-control
with high caloric food and alcohol,
and, lastly, to his shameless pride
those spicy “dishes” on the side!
