High Cholesterol - Poem by Ruth Walters

I've got high cholesterol,
my doctor diagnosed it.
According to my doctor
my bad fats overflowing.

I was a tad perplexed
and thought that I'd been hexed
'I'm on a low fat diet,
that's fruit and veg, I said.

'Ah', said he, 'that's ‘cause,
your mum and dad designed ya.
It's in the genes you know
but don't let science blind ya'

I took my jeans right off
and looked right down each leg.
Well I'm not dumb I tell ya,
now I wear skirts instead.
