global contagion


Fernando Botero – Rich Children, 1966

global contagion

global contagion
moving in a big way
i walk for obesity
right in an ambiguous
environment

social justice asks
what would you do
for a day of abstinence?
a day of sucrose-free
dihydrogen monoxide

time to grow
a little character
make the difference
between the truth
and the shadows

find the voice
to barter your
health over tender

what variable
keeps fat face
out of comic books
and chubby fingers
off game controllers?

how much is acceptable
before slim is the epidemic?
