Obesity Kills



Many graves are dug
with forks, spoons and knives.
Many overeat till they lose their lives.
Obesity kills
like dire suicide.
People often die of food glut inside.
Many graves are dug
with knives, forks and spoons.
Many overeat till they match balloons.
Obesity kills
like drug overdose.
People often die of food circa close.
Many graves are dug
with spoons, knives and forks.
Many overeat till they pop their corks.
Obesity kills
like substance abuse.
People often die of food overuse.
