Obesity

By Jen Hunt

There’s a reason the word jowel
Rhymes with bowel
And trowel—
The wolf does howl, the smell is foul,
The grave digger chews a dry, brittle dowel
“Don’t look down!” hoots the cemetery owl
Whose life’s as lost as a big round vowel
Oh, the things we yowl
When obesity is on the prowl
And then, before you catch your breath,
The fat man yawns and throws in the towel
