Upsize

Upsize

We live within a world that pushes
The idea that things
Are better if they’re bigger and that
Upsizing just brings

Joy and happiness and sense
Of more bang for your buck
I’m here to tell you now if you
Fall for it you’re a schmuck

The restaurants will brag about
Their new great combo meal
Even more French fries and meat
That make it a great deal

But what they’ll never tell you is that
It’s just too much food
Devouring all of it will make
Your stomach soon protrude

The car dealer would have you think
You should be fully loaded
But truth is that his caring for
Customers has eroded

You go to buy a piece of tech
And there will surely be
Someone who will offer more
For just a little fee

Be weary of anyone who
Offers you an upsize
Be it car or fridge or house
Or clothing or French fries

They want you to believe that you
Are getting a great deal
The truth is something that they try
Their hardest to conceal

That less is more and you don’t need
Anymore than size small
Upsizing your meal will leave you
On the floor to sprawl

Making you lethargic because
It’s just too much fuel
For your body to process
At one time and keep cool

Upsizing your car won’t make it
Get from A to B
The basic model has the one
Thing that you need: the key

Getting the most recent tech
Is just not worth the price
Why pay twice as much when last year’s
Model will suffice?

Why would anyone fall for
The old upsizing ploy
When older, smaller size is something
You can still enjoy?

And often is much healthier
And better for your savings
If you just don’t give in to
All of your upsize cravings

    true…true…true…
    my wife says, bargain shop, pay little for the same (~_~)
