Life Of A Glutton - Poem by Dowell Oba
Wining and dining here and then
do dwell on the dining table
an appetite far more insatiable
guzzling and gorging all the way.
Easily moved by pleasures of the table
bingeing and feasting on masses of food
salivating and drooling all the way
with flammable nose at scents of food.
Devourer of food at slightest chance
omnivorous animal far more wolfish
eating like a horse and like a pig
having large eyes bigger than stomach.
Getting easily tickled, up at palate
licking of lips, licking off chops
drooling at mere sight of dessert
up at keeping a good table.
Living to eat, not eating to live
living only for eating, else dying.
Such pitiable life of a glutton
a paragon of greed and disgust
with belly well cursed with obesity
a handsome reward for voracity.
