All They Need To Know

I guess, to most people

Someone being fat

Is all they need to know.

They don’t acknowledge

Illnesses that result in obesity

They don’t acknowledge

Experiences different from their own

And especially

If they know someone who has lost weight

Or if they did it themselves

There is nothing you can say

To change their mind

About whether or not

You’re dumb—

You’re fat!!!

I mean, come on—

Nobody smart would ever

Do that to themselves…

Aren’t I right, mom?
