Fat men have warm feelings
said the philosopher.
Their hearts are surrounded
by so much flesh
they can’t be cold or cruel.
Ah, said the woman
sipping her wine.
Fat men have sharp eyes
the philosopher went on
ogling the woman’s cleavage.
Their eyes are sort of drowned
in plump eyelids
so they can’t look around too much.
This gives them a better focus
to appreciate beauty.
Is that so, said the woman.
She was sitting near the window
her chair was comfortable
she didn’t really feel like moving.
Fat men never cheat on you
declared the philosopher.
They don’t have the time
to sleep around.
Too busy keeping in shape…
He chuckled and scoffed
a big chocolate éclair.
The woman winced.
Really, she said.
Fat men are sweet and kind
insisted the philosopher.
If a lady is kind in return
they can fall in love so easily…
The woman smiled coldly.
Too bad I already am in love,
with a very skinny man.
Ah, said the philosopher.
I’m so sorry for you.
