On a customer's lunch
Accounts for the size of his belly.

Who ate of new bread till he bust.

Would leave stuff on his plate
When some kid in Kuwait
Starves to death in an unheated flat."

And the blame for my fat,
I lay square on my dear old dad's pate

Adds one jot to some poor person's station.

And adds credence to dad's declaration.
