Owl Poetry & Prose

Fat Hopes

Wounded lips

Enlarged hips

A week of splurging on kevum, kokis

Ah what bliss when one can eat

As if the fat don’t matter, as if the scale won’t tip

Yet for how long, for how much more

Will excuses work, will the needle soar

Sit down, anchor fast, hold on, this too shall pass

Daily the adage of yore

“Tomorrow shall I eat like this no more”

Aney bung, what folly for those of us

Who keep waiting for tomorrow’s bus
