Dear Bum

Cheeky Rhymes

Body Image Recovery I wield a sizable bum As shapely and wide as they come With a wiggle of my hip I make the scales tip Bringing down, without a frown The most obnoxious clown Another of my woes My chubby Hobbit toes Adorning wide-ish Hobbit feet Which never miss a beat Stepping, tapping, moving to gigs Bringing along the aforementioned hips If you want to look close There is my Romanesque nose Thanks to […]
