Round & Saftig 2013

Round & Saftig*

 

My father liked them round and saftig:

Grandpa too – round and juicy.

That was then.  And in a way,

One might well say,

The then was better.

Calories not reckoned,

Anorexia unknown.

It was hip with hips,

Fecundity

And beauty, the flip

side of today.

 

When one’s struggled with the fashion,

One would simply like to cash in

On a time when effort lay

In roundedness,

And beer whipped up with egg and sugar,

Whipped cream cakes and chubby figure

Strolling casually, (not a jogger

In the English language),

 

Round and saftig: round and juicy.

That was grandpa’s fantasy.

Great, eh!

 

*Saftig ( an affectionate Yiddish word for huggable and chubby
