Overweight, baby fat and pleasingly plump Are ways used to describe people of girth But I'm here to put my two cents in And leave it for what it's worth A woman I know always speaks of herself As being jolly and pleasingly plump She has a sense of humor - I'll give her that But she's obviously never seen her own rump The baby-fat excuse only works for awhile But at some time one has to outgrow it And retaining water is usually a poor explanation I'll believe that about as far as I can throw it When you get almost as wide as you are tall It's time to give up and admit it Wearing dark colors don't make you look thinner Or donning a dress so little you can't zip it If you get out of breath just fixing a snack Or huff and puff when you climb the stairs You know you're big when you have to sit In a restaurant on two chairs So keep your terms of avoidance to yourself Or any obligatory terms such as that I'm here to tell you like it really is The plain truth is, I'm just downright fat Kathleen McCoy Eldridge© May 23, 2007 All Rights Reserved
