Invertie Bertie

A slimline figure
was Bertie Petite,
who above anything else,
adored to eat.

His chubby friends pondered:
“How does one keep
both an intake of such grub
and a slender physique?”

Bertie reached down his throat,
past the lungs and the sternals
and with a spleen in his grasp
spewed up his internals.

He pointed to his innards,
showing clogged up arteries,
“I’m fat on the inside!”
he shrieked (with some difficulty).


Even inside out,
Bertie was still fit and young,
Though a trip up a curb,
punctured his right lung.
