The present is Health Week and citizens will again be counselled to eat, sleep, drink and diet with the preservation of health always in view.
"The present week is Health Week," I said to Bluegum Bill. Stripped to the buff, Bill took an axe, And swung it with a will. Tireless, with rhythmic stroke He hewed a mighty tree. "An' how does that concern a bloke?" Said Bluegum Bill to me. "I always count my calories," I said to Bluegum Bill. "Uh, huh," said he. Deep in the tree With an unerring skill His axe-blade bit; and in the sun His thews bulged mightily. "Can't say I've ever met with one," Said Bluegum Bill to me. "I watch my vitamins with care," I said to Bluegum Bill. His body gleamed; indeed, he seemed As rugged as the hill On which we stood. "That might be good For monied men," said he. "Myself I gets no time for pets," Said Bluegum Bill to me. "I always diet to keep fit," I said to Bluegum Bill. "Look out!" said he. "Stand back a bit!" The huge tree shook the hill. "Great work!" I cried. "How do you keep Such strength?" He glanced at me "Hard toil an' tucker an' some sleep," Said Bluegum Bill to me.
