Age-Weight Score

Another way to measure up.

Twenty-eight years old
Weighing twenty kilos,
She weighs about as much as
Two boxes of pillows,
Which isn’t enough
To sustain prolonged life,
Hopefully a husband
Didn’t starve his wife.

Whether kilos or pounds
It rarely works out,
If it’s the same as your age
There is reason to shout,
Something is wrong
Almost all of the time,
Forty kilos at age forty
Isn’t optimum prime.

Ninety kilos at ninety
Or maybe, ninety pounds,
In this day and age
Where too much abounds,
Either unit of measurement
Gives cause to investigate,
What is Aunt Betty eating
How much is on her plate?
