A Politically Incorrect Write About Obese Kids

A Politically Incorrect Write About Obese Kids

 

By Elton Camp

 

Many obese kids is a development new

When I was a child, fat ones were few

TV, video games & computers didn’t exist

Seldom a day of outside play was missed

 

Moving about a youngster’s day was spend

He walked or pedaled wherever he went

Games outside made the child’s day

For in front of a TV he couldn’t lay

 

Schools had recess and physical ed

Against exercising nothing was said

Political correctness hadn’t been born

A fat kid was ridiculed & left forlorn

 

As a teenager, he must be normal weight

Or there was almost no chance of a date

Today’s standards says this is not fair

Yet, an obese kid was extremely rare

 

Let’s see who’ll say that I’m too hard

On the youngster who’s a tub of lard

 

(Obviously I recognize that there are rare cases where childhood obesity is due to some disease and beyond the child or parent's control. This write does not address such cases.)
