All Things Big And Fat - Poem by Risha Ahmed (12 yrs)

There is a famous saying
Which you have probably heard
“You are what you eat” they say
Though it may sound quite absurd
Gone are the good old days
When people weren’t sticks, but just a little wide
And it wasn’t considered unnatural
To be a tad on life’s heavier side
When it was good to look healthy
Not like a fortnight old corpse
And folks were energetic and strong
And didn’t fall over like props
When their skin glowed with health
And didn’t look like chewed stale bread
And cheeks had a real natural color
Which couldn’t be obtained by painting yourself red
When their lungs were clean from the pure air they breathed
Not the disgusting concoction available today
And fruits were eaten in abundance
Not served in one square inch miniature trays
So when we accuse someone of being old-fashioned
Just give this a second’s thought
“Those people accepted each other for who they were
While here, everybody’s boiling in a pot”.
