They say “beauty is skin deep”
so that you'll carve your skin away
to reveal the tissue beneath
something new to loath away
But when you're swimming in flesh
and drowning in yourself
they won't throw you a rope.
But they can't let you drown as well.
So, they'll force you on treadmills
and you'll damn well fit in
because your body is a monster
and your flesh is a sin
