Today's Chronicle has a story that definitely goes in the "No Shit, Sherlock" file. Here's the first paragraph: Many obese people who blame their genes or their metabolisms actually fail to lose weight because they eat too much, a new study concludes.
So I wrote the following poem:
If Sherlock had in fact never shat,
He too would have been fat.
His other recourse would have been extreme ya
Know--maybe something like bulimia.
So whether you face the bowl or sit upon it,
Thank gawd this is a sextet and not a sonnet.
I guess it's not a very nice poem.
