Where the Widewalk Ends

With apologies to Shel Silverstein
There is a place where the widewalk ends

And where a healthy life begins, 

And there the meals are crisp and fresh,
And don’t add pounds onto your flesh
And make you big as Bangladesh.
And thin your too-thick skin.
Let us leave this place where food’s fried in grease
And cookies and cakes are our best friends.
Past the shelves where the keep marshmallow fluff
And Nutella, and candy and unhealthy stuff
And instead tell ourselves that enough is enough.
Go to the place where the widewalk ends.
Yes, we'll walk with a walk that keeps us on the go,
And try to improve on the ol’ status quo,
So our bodies stay fit, and our bodies don’t grow
To the place where the widewalk ends.
