the bulge

With belly like a poisoned pup
Said I: 'I must give bacon up'
And also, I profanely fear,
I must abandon bread and beer
That make for portliness they say;
Yet of them copiously today
I ate with an increasing sense
Of grievous corpulence.

I like a lot of things I like.
Too bad that I must go on strike
Against pork sausages and mash,
Spaghetti and fried corn-beef hash.

I deem he is a lucky soul
Who has no need of girth control;
For in the old of age: 'Il faut
Souffrir pour etre belle.'

Yet let me not be unconsoled:
So many greybeards I behold,
Distinguished in affairs of state,
In culture counted with the Great,

Have tummies with a shameless bulge,
And so I think I'll still indulge
In eats I like without a qualm,
And damn my diaphragm!'

Life for Beginners said...

If my bulge the price to pay
To satisfy my cravings everyday
I'll gladly volunteer
To drink all that beer?


Thanks for sharing Mr. Service. Tak pernah dengar pun, but I'm the katak and all that tempurung business.

hey lady, for a brief moment i thought WAHHHHHH, BOW BOW BOW, FALL AT YOUR FEET....

there's nothing wrong with corpulence
it's not as if its flatulence
gimme a full and buxom lass i say
over an anorexic model anyday....

550ml jar of faith said...

He he, I could use more of this type of pro-hedonism writing - screw the diet, I want my beer! And everything else that goes with it!

myCoffee said...

Hot damn! I just had lunch but you got me all hungry again, esp. for that piece of nice and juicy looking burger. ;-p

oh for the love of bulge!!!

"to fight the bulge is futile,
i'd rather make up the curvy percentile,
how can beer and steak be a sin?
it just gives my skin a glossy sheen!"

J2Kfm said...

those killer ribs are stuff worth worshipping,
futile enemies to MY own fight with tummy a-bulging,
who cares bout a lil' mindless indulging, I'd say ...

Lyrical Lemongrass said...

My girth is wide, it's already too late
Gimme those ribs before I lactate!

Feel very good and satisfied everytime I eat at TGIF but always left with the feeling that its not value for money!

CUMI & CIKI said...

Did my comment go thru? I also wanted to add that it's like copulating with the same sex (not my cuppa tea).
