Comment of the Week

“Though I changed my mind; how ’bout Metabolistopheles?

‘Ah! Now I’ve done the sigmoidoscopy,
All is settled; fiber bulk reigns my entrails.
Yet no leaner than before I stand — nay, tread,
Over insulin’s winding curves and opaque trails.
My crawling underbelly, quenched only by bread,
Fiddles to the tune of my fat’s scarcity swerves.
Or a mocking allele expressed by ravaged chemistry,
Tangled in miserable knots, escapes my bosoms:
Falling down towards Earth by the shortest path.’”

– I love it, Stefan.
