Annual Checkup

Lose weight or you’re dead, he said
A heart attack will do you in
You may look good on paper—
A respectable lab report and blood pressure of a 17 year old--
But Intra-Abdominal Adiposity is your yoke
Your internal organs are immersed in fat
Your heart in time will yield to stress
And match weight gain
With pensive urns of dust remains.
