His more than ample physique,
was a profuse plethora of abundance,
a surfeit of shameless gastronome
that defined a cornucopia of excess
and a masticating overindulgence.

Such a pity to gormandize,
to binge, gorge, and satiate.
to devour in such excess, 
in such morbid over indulgence,
in such heinous and nefarious gluttony.

His self-inflicted surfeit of sustenance
debilitated and shaped his identity, his image, 
his gargantuan and elephantine appearance,
and nauseated and revolted all who gazed
upon his abominable and abhorrent obesity.
