I may exercise until I hurt, but still, like lard, my thighs! Does their chubbiness delight you? Must you laugh like you were smashed? 'Cause I walk like I've got saddlebags That are surgically attached. Just like yeasty rising dough expanding to twice its size, all dimpled, white and jiggly: Ugh! My thighs! Would you rather see me slender, with my legs so long and lithe and a shapely turn of ankle? Believe me, so would I! Does their wide girth make you giggle? You shouldn't laugh so hard, 'cause it looks like you are stowing baggage in your own backyard. I may try liposuction or diet until I die. I may do step aerobics, but still, so fat, my thighs! Are you humored by the friction of the rubbing of my thighs? Do you fear I'll start combusting right before your very eyes? Peeking out from the edge of cut-off shorts: My thighs Flaring up from calves that look like storks: My thighs I'm a beached whale, washed in by the tide. Stuck in the mud, 'cause my rear end's too wide. Leaving behind dreams of corduroy, My thighs Soft talcum powder - their only joy, My thighs These are the genes my ancestors gave: stout trunks that take many hours to shave. My thighs My thighs My thighs!

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
