All You Can Eat

Rating: 4.8


I went to the All-You-Can-Eat Buffet;
I like to go there as much as I can.
The food is so good, I can't stay away.
I eat what I like; that's always my plan.

I noticed the last time that everyone there
seemed to be overweight. Yes, it was true.
And then I felt a slight twinge of despair.
Was I one of them? Could I be fat, too?

I checked out my body, a long, hard look.
My arms are flabby; my belly is round.
I'm not the skinniest page in the book,
and yes, my shadow makes dents in the ground.

I looked around again, and I could see
that all of those fat guys were just like me.

Kim, you've tackled a fat problem in your charmingly humorous fashion. Although obesity is nothing to laugh at, you've done it with style by laughing at yourself. I'm still laughing as I'm stuffing myself with great pizza.

All You Can Eat Buffet drives us to eat more. We should visit only on certain occasions.

So true. It's hard to stop eating when it costs no more to eat more. We feel like we have to 'get our money's worth'.
