Fat Hatred/Fat Lies
People will literally judge a fat person
More than they will judge
A coke head.
People will literally call a fat person
Gluttonous before they apply
The same principal
To an alcoholic.
I’m sick of pretending
As if the majority of the population
Doesn’t treat health like it is something
You can photograph for instagram,
Or measure at a department store.
I’m desperately in search
Who acknowledges that
Is prospering in the era
Of disease, poverty, climate change
And racial inequality.
How is it that we have managed
To get so many people on the same page
About so many issues
But body neutrality is still considered
I’m sick of the bigots, the hypocrites
I’m sick of the performative allies and
I’m sick of the fat lies.
