Fatty Bum Bum

How did I end up in this state?
I'm always fighting with my weight,
I'd like to put it down to fate,
but that ain't honest!

Cute and I like the repeated last line of each stanza. Very nicely done.

Wonderfully amusing poem. A light heart will sure take couple of ounces away from my fat! Thank you for sharing.

Witty write indeed. If you like modern poetry you may enjoy my work, which has recently been published in magazines in the US and Canada

This poem put a smile on my face. You made it funny while you were owning up to what you have done. Luv it X

I have to admit, I really cheesed off the doctor when in hospital recently. They suspected (Wrongly - Hooray!) something unnecessarily unpleasant. Have you lost any weight recently, Mr O'Neill? No idea, I never weigh myself. Ooh! she said. Go to the Phillipines. I said. End smile.
