Naked And Fat

Naked And Fat

A Poem by Mario Vitale

Fat people


for I long to be thin yet where do I begin

can't even get to the gym

wear a heros smile still know all the great while

having many bounce to the ounce with the cushion for my pushing

got one foot in heaven while the other is in hell

but I truly got a good story to tell

when I was young I used to be skinny & wise

souped up six pack and learned to relax

playing my guitar in the cellar

although those many years have passed

still I have every bit of reason to grasp

I'm a fat man who drinks a lot of soda

watching late night flicks such as Rhoda

but let me grasp hold of

a pen and a paper nor stereo to caper

me and Eric B with a great plate full of fish


sorry that I missed

to try to burst your bubble

I'm in the game trying to stay out of trouble

yet make my Martini strong like right on the double

not since Fred with Barney Rubble

life is filled with twists and turns

one soul soars while the other soon to be burned

the thin philosophy killed Karen Carpenter in her Anorexia

when I was young making love was for fun now those days are done

need to relax then bask in the vast expanse as the disco ball

onto the no it all who has perfected his game

I'm happy to be naked & fat

although soon it may give me a heart attack

falling apart at the seams with evil means

yet everyhting is clean while I live in a land so very mean

getting loose on my caboose its the hour of power

may have to take it all in with a cold shower

over and over like the over the shoulder bolder holder
