Things that puzzle me

 

By now,
you know,
my musings are
rather odd.

No insult
or disrespect
intended.

These things,
I muse about,
do really
puzzle me.

You probably have
seen them,
people defying
proper
body distributions.

They seem to
have arms and legs
of rather skinny
proportions.

And then
there is
this quite
outsized
tummy.

Looking like
have swallowed
a very large
Medicine ball.

How can
a body
grow like
this?

Only gaining weight
and extending
on the mid-section.

Did they swallow
pumpkin seeds?

Do they have a
hidden valve
and inflate
themselves
in the morning?

Are they about to burst?

These are thoughts
keeping me up at
night.
