Anointed One

Anointed One

He got anointed – and he lost a ton.
He’s now as slim as any whale that floats
Upon the surface and enjoys the sun.
He got anointed. And he lost a ton
Of ugly fat! Still, skinny ain’t no fun.
He dives when he espies approaching boats.
He got anointed and he lost a ton:
He’s now as slim as any whale that floats.

–Tom Riley
