Size Matters. Small isnít small anymore.
If itís coffee at Starbuckís, itís tall.
If the egg is tiny they call
It medium, or largeÖ or

Letís take shrimp; they fall
Into three sizes onshore:
Large, jumbo, or colossal, a true oxymoron
To beat them all.

Size matters.

Small isnít small anymore.
Now a womanís clothes all
Market themselves as small
No matter what her hips confessed she wore,

Unless, of course theyíre super-small,
The supermodel size we all adore.
Those are petite according to the mirror
And the size chart on the wall.

Size matters.

Small isnít small anymore.
If youíre a man then all
Your clothes are large, or XL, or talló
Triple XL makes it easy to score.

You canít buy a drink that is small.
Itís at least a medium or more.
The fries are the new metaphor
Of the way they will supersize us all.

Size Matters.

Small isnít small anymore.

I guess they're only helping the BIG feel small and small feel big..humans are 'a weird mob '( as us Aussies would say)
who'se to know what it will accomplish in the end.

Delightful write..
