The Battle Of The Bulge Analysis



Author: poem of Robert Service Type: poem Views: 2

This year an ocean trip I took, and as I am a Scot

And like to get my money's worth I never missed a meal.

In spite of Neptune's nastiness I ate an awful lot,

Yet felt as fit as if we sailed upon an even keel.

But now that I am home again I'm stricken with disgust;

How many pounds of fat I've gained I'd rather not divulge:

Well, anyway I mean to take this tummy down or bust,

So here I'm suet-strafing in the

                    Battle of the Bulge.

No more will sausage, bacon, eggs provide my breakfast fare;

On lobster I will never lunch, with mounds of mayonnaise.

At tea I'll Spartanly eschew the chocolate éclair;

Roast duckling and péche melba shall not consummate my days.

No more nocturnal ice-box raids, midnight spaghetti feeds;

On slabs of pâté de foie gras I vow I won't indulge:

Let bran and cottage cheese suffice my gastronomic needs,

And lettuce be my ally in the

                    Battle of the Bulge.



To hell with you, ignoble paunch, abhorrent in my sight!

I gaze at your rotundity, and savage is my frown.

I'll rub you and I'll scrub you and I'll drub you day and night,

But by the gods of symmetry I swear I'll get you down.

Your smooth and smug convexity, by heck! I will subdue,

And when you tucker in again with joy will I refulge;

No longer of my toes will you obstruct my downward view . . .

With might and main I'll fight to gain the

                    Battle of the Bulge.
