by Sharon Pennington
Miles of mirror adorn the wall.
Midgets and fatsoes and giants, all
Huff and hoe and grunt and pant
As stacks of weights they heave and haul.
In front of mirrors they exercise
And try to alter their shape-n-size.
Gain some muscle or lose some flab;
A super-bod the desired prize.
One set of crunches; a light bench press;
No sign of sweat to show the stress.
But implore the mirror to magnify
The cut and bulge of biceps they flex.
A sense of failure and dejection haunts
When ungranted go their stupid wants.
They fault the treadmill and the bars
As at the paunch the mirror taunts.
Slow and Steady that won the race:
A wasted point in this fast-food age.
Want the world, and want it NOW.
Instant results are the rage.
Six-pack you want without burning fat.
Salsa expert in fourteen days flat.
Getting laid on the first date with her.
A palatial house without savings squat.
Dash of patience and hard work combine
To bestow on you treasures you pine.
But if you want the quick way out
Liposuction works just as fine.
