She was in Great Shape

She ran her three miles every day.
Swam her thirty laps.
Watched her diet in every way.
Abstained all the fats.

Exercise was her answer.
Her routine mainstay.
Exercise the enhancer.
Was her fun and play.

She was a vegetarian.
Weighed a perfect weight.
An avid sanitarian.
Cleaning was her fate.

She really thought she had the answer.
Laying there in crepe.
She died of pancreatic cancer.
But died in great shape.

Was this supposed to be funny? I can't tell-but hey, you speak the truth! You can't escape death no matter how hard you try or how healthy you are.

It sure will get us in the end
No matter how we beg and plea
If thin,so fat that we can't bend
Yes, moderation 'tis the key!
