There was a man
Who was so plump,
All of us laughed
At his big fat rump.

He ate like glutton
With crunch and clump,
He treated his stomach
Like a garbage dump.

In his youth
This man was wealthy,
He ate a lot of food
Pure and healthy.
Soon as he became
Strong and sound,
He joined sports
'The best' he was crowned.

But his big
And voracious appetite,
Craved for more food
'Junks' were a delight!
He ate burgers
In his regular diet,
French fries and sweets
And all those not right.

His big fat belly
Much to his disgust,
Became so portly
It seemed to burst!
And then one day
He fell very ill,
We took him to a doctor
Who charged a big bill.

The doctor said,
"You are a foolish chump,
You ate so much rubbish
You've got a massive lump."

Saying so he took up
A large vacuum pump,
And from his big fat belly
Sucked out the lump.

Thus got a lesson
the man so plump,
And we no more laughed
at his big fat rump.
