Tit For Tat 1997

 

       Tit For Tat

What does excessive sugar/fat

Do to the body’s thermostat?

I should guess it’s always that

The law of nature’s tit for tat:

Much too much brings on too much

Or much too little; and the crutch

Of reaching eighty-five and such

Is no excuse (as people say).

The body wasn’t made that way –

It certainly ain’t glad that way.

You’ve got to be quite mad to say

That just because you’re eighty-five

And still alive,

That you’re not gonna have to pay

For your excesses –

What my guess is.
