For No Diet Day - Shame, by Eileen Rosensteel, from Fat Poets Speak 2: Living and Loving Fatly


Eileen Rosensteel

The name of the game is blame,
pointing fingers play dodge ball with responsibility.
Shame prescribed in the name of health
with diet and exercise, the junk food of diet industry science.
Let’s aim our anger at the schools, teaching same is better than truth
and safety lies in uniformity.
Blame the media’s digitally enhanced images filled with
empty famous role models
teaching us to view our bodies with judgment.
Isn’t it a shame?
