Return To Slender

A girl of just fourteen

Decides to go lean

Little by little stop the meals

Skip the breakfast

Take the heel

A moment on the lips

A lifetime on the hips

A year passes

She's underweight

She skips all her meals

Thinking she's still fat

Another year passes

She looks like stick

And is just as thin

Looks in the mirror and thinks she's fat

When she's anything but that

Keep the diet going

Because after all, no one like a chubby girl
