Colin W. Campbell: Overweight

Does my bum look big in this?
The question made me reminisce,
for the answer it would bring
was, Yes, it's big in anything.

Now months of watching what I ate
leave me glad I'm overweight
with a new world to explore
as, true, I was obese before.

Where once I said, I've let it go.
My rear end's rhino-like, I know,
today, I don't seem half so dumb
since now I've got a monkey's bum.
