Fat Celebrities

Don't know how it would go into a poem, but I could so easily make a list of famous fat people I miss terribly. Mama Cass, of course, would go at the top. Let's see..Jackie Gleason, Peter Ustinov, Mae West, Chris Farley, John Candy, John Belushi.

Then I would list some ofl the people who felt pressured to lose weight along the line and who either regained or kept yo-yo cycling: Kirstie Alley, Aretha Franklin, Oprah, Jason Alexander, Sally Struthers, Roseanne, Orson Welles, Marlon Brando.

What could we say to these people in a poem?

You are more lasting than one body size.
Magic has no BMI.
Your eyes bring stories; don't lose them.
Don't wait for the world to grow up, and don't grow down to them.
