Obesity


Men are obese,
Women are obese,
Children are obese,
The hospitals are being built.
Men are not hunting, except with their eyes,
Women are not storing, except in their thoughts,
Children are not chasing, except in the play stations,
Evolution of selfish human from the humble predators,
The hunters are being hunted,
In their own yard of comfortable sinister,
When the whole world reaches to their monitors,
They are being grounded to be redundant.
