Battle of the Bulge : A Quest for Change

Updated on August 1, 2012

Battle of the Bulge: A Quest for Change


Most of us are heavy set. If you wait for change then you’re not ready yet. A refill is free so sip ice tea til your belly aches. Better yet lemonade could penetrate your thirst. Throw down curly fries til your buttons burst. What’s worse; being hungry or being in a hearse? Most of us are obese. Drink a whole meal with no teeth. Order a week of calories; eat until we break our seat. Breakfast banquets and dinner feasts. The land of the free #refill. Attitude determines altitude, what you eating? Food? No reason to be rude. How could you be so beautiful and so cold. We talk about getting old, let’s make it a reality. We gather over cornucopias, birth day cakes, fish fries and barbecues. We take cues from fast food chains. In drive through windows we wait for change. When it comes we never run we just wobble hobbled from carrying weight. Defy gravity to make it back to your place. We find change in our cushions exchange it for lint. Content with consumption our money is spent. Can I have a refill with no receipt? Slice of lemon in my tea, tooth pick in my teeth. Thank you Lord for this bread and this meat. May it nourish our flesh as we partake in a spirit of prosperity. Let’s eat! PWIV
