Our Oral Fixation

We’re mostly big and contorted 
From snacks and diets distorted
If you are still thin
You no longer fit in
Small portions our culture's aborted

Author's note: Just got back from the continent.  People are still much leaner there than here.  We need to stop filling ourselves and learn to be a little more satisfied with less.  It is really OK.  Now pass the fries please!  BTW, the central market in Florence is a fantastic display of food love, yet the people there are thin.  How can this be?
