The Pot Calling The Kettle Fat: Revolutionary Improv Limerick

May 2, 2013

There once was a woman named Zhen*/
Who’d exclaim, (each time she’d walk in):/
You guys are all FAT!”
Which would set us to crying again.
*(pronounced “Zen”)

There once was a woman named Zhen/
(though herself not overly thin),
who’d exclaim: “LOOK AT THAT!
You guys are all FAT!”
Which would set us to whining* again.



A Citizen’s Warning And Lament: Improv Free Verse

September 5, 2012

Spend your life paying taxes,
Volunteering in the community,
Coaching others children to become better citizens, team players, more healthy.

Offer your life
Working to feed and shelter the homeless,
Leading youth on wilderness trips and service projects,
Giving of your time, talents, money,
and everything you have to your church.

And when the time comes
that one of your own needs help,
because she is too old,
she doesn’t have insurance,
you make too much money,
her condition isn’t seen as a disease,
and she becomes so thin
that she falls through the cracks,

Prepare, then, oh Citizen!
to stand by
and watch her die
and wish you could you have volunteered
and paid
and given of your time, talents,
and everything that you had
to bless her life
and keep her alive.

Over Old and Overweight: A Revolutionary ConTEXTing Poem

April 8, 2010

Today I was told/
I look old./
Not wear it’s at./
2nite my body hurts/
on my way 2 being thin./
But if I do hard work,/
my heart won’t hurt/
that way again.
