Fit for something

He just wants to lay on the beach
with his belly so fat he can’t see to
teach his toes how to tingle
and then wonders why
he’s still a single guy.

The gymnasium’s next to the aquarium
but he’s a fish out of water
can’t breathe at the thought of
exercise.

One day the tide will come in
attached to a fuckin’ big fin
and the shark underneath
will be the finish
of him.
