All Things Slim and Beautiful

Thou shalt obey the law of BMI,
Thou shalt not cite genetic alibi,
Loss of portion control’s a deadly sin;
Let yourself go? Only the good die thin.
O birds and babes, wannabe size zeroes,
All the guys who might be six pack heroes –
Ditch the BOGOFFs and try these guilt-free meals –
Nothing tastes as bad as being fat feels.
If you can’t face another banana
Here’s your shortcut to skinny Nirvana…
(I’ll take the pills Amen I’ll get the band )
…Kate Moss is waiting in the promised land.
This isn’t just food…how much will you pay
To star in your own morality play?
