"LIFE AFTER FAT"
by Mac McNear
(Member, Area XI - Div. 4)
(Published with Permission of the Author)
This is what I call FAT

Goldfoil Spacer

My wife put me on a diet
Iím supposed to eat this not that
Has she ever considered the vital question
Is there really life after fat?
Hamburgers a la Dagwood
Everything tastes like cardboard
Spurned by a starving rat
But itís good for me, reduces cholesterol
Sure hope thereís life after fat!
Cardboard Matzoh
Itíll put vinegar back in the bottle
Increase the size of your bat
But I think itís all propaganda
And thereís really no life after fat!
Bottle of Wine-Vinegar
The whole thing might be futile
Like swatting at a single gnat
When the swarm of thousands just waiting
Wondering if thereís life after fat!
Wasp
But Iíll see it through to the bitter end
And no matter where Iím at
Keep swallowing things not fit for a dog
Pretending thereís life after fat!
Dogs
