No matter how much food I eat,
I keep on getting thinner.
I slim down with each little treat,
Each breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
I ate a brownie yesterday,
And now my belt is loose.
Ten pounds of fat fell clean away
From just one chocolate mousse!
My sandwich overflows the bun—
A toothpick would be great.
But when I eat it, I’ll be one!
Oh, what a sticky fate!
And next week is Thanksgiving Day—
You know what that’s about.
If I can’t keep the snacks at bay,
I might turn inside out!
