An Ode To My Muffin Top


O proud paunch above my belt
Your burgeoning balloon of blubber
Jiggles jauntily as I saunter confidently
Into the juniors department

Nary a passerby can stop his eye
From admiring your dimpled love handles
As your buxom chub perches
Firmly over the waist of my jeans

Your cylinder of chunk around my middle
Is a flag staked in newly discovered land
Loudly announcing
"These pants are too tight,

"And so is this shirt."
But you're not one to shirk your girth
And instead prefer to wriggle free
of your restraints, and

When at all possible
Display your deep, dark belly button.
