Why Women Are Fat
Little girl, 
stand up straight,
brush your hair, 
put on your dress.
Cross your legs,
watch what you wear,
wear this perfume,
powder your face.

Little girl,
You're almost eight.
Put on your stockings,
be polite.
Watch your weight,
paint your nails.
Be nice to boys,
do what they say.

Young lady,
You're fourteen now.
Your waist's too thick,
Your boobs are too small.
You look like a cow,
lose weight quick.
You're much too fat,
you're much too tall.

Young Miss,
just now 18.
You're a woman now,
you don't act it, though..
Find a husband
stay at home,
run on the treadmill
chained to your stove.
Have many children,
then lose the weight,
dye your hair blonde,
and trim your waist.
Wear your high heals
and mini skirts,
put down the fork
before you get hurt.
It hurts inside,
but no one cares.
Until your grave,
you're only just there.

No pressure.

A very true to the heart write. Many girls feel this way and I can relate "big" time. Sad that this is the way little girls are taught from very young. Amazingly written. Great job!!
