Ice cream, cookies, pies and cakes
How many goodies can I make?
Donuts, pudding, popcorn treats,
Give me something good to eat.
I’m not hungry, but give me more;
Bread and meat and foods galore.
I’ve eaten til I think I’ll burst,
Now I need to quench my thirst.
I’m stuffed, I can’t eat one more bite
Unzip these pants they’re way too tight!
But wait! I’ll take that pudding cup;
OHHH, if I could just throw up.
The pounds pack on, I feel so big
I’m just a chunky little pig.
My clothes don’t fit I feel depressed;
What kind of cake would you suggest?
Low carb, Low Fat, Dr. Phil,
Don’t forget the diet pill.
Slim fast, Atkins, and South Beach,
Most of these seem out of reach.
I eat so much I have to wonder
If I could resolve world hunger.
I know this behavior is self defeating,
But prop me up, I’ll keep on eating.
