THE NEWEST TREND! of the day!

Is it REALLY – here to stay?

PHARMACOLOGY – ON THE PROWL,*

Now-seeking what is on our towel!

Dermatologists-announce: “SWEATING’s BAD;

If you sweat TOO MUCH, we-can-make-you-glad:

We’ll treat it, AND CURE IT – this-you-can-bet,

We have-just-the-thing (pause) so-you-won’t-get-wet!

SWEATING’s A MEDICAL CONDITION TOO;

Don’t ‘let it go;’ it might hurt you,

And, of course, we’ve-got-the-medication YOU NEED,

Which will – your sweat, (pause) safe-ly impede!”

IT USED TO BE,** sweat was GOOD,

It cools the body – and toxins would,

Be released, (pause) through your skin,

And-your sweat might stink; it could-smell-of-tin,

Or something worse! like rotten meat,

I was told-to-be-grateful! for-even-sweaty-feet,

Indicate – the-body’s pushing-out,

Nasty stuff! Let’s cheer and shout,

For exercise – and-sweating-a-lot,

BUT – Now, it’s bad, and what we’ve got,

Are medical, money-making schemes,

They must pay people – to-tailor-p.r.-dreams,

To simply label: EVERY-CONDITION-AS-WRONG,

So a new medicine can come along,

And-make-us-so-healthy; what “the heck?”

It seems our health they wish to wreck!

Well, I like to sweat – and it doesn’t smell bad;“

Mr. Kotter- I’m-a-SWEAT-HOG*** – and I’m so glad!!” 🙂

    • as usual!! 🙂

** – as with so many other conditions years ago, when I was “growing up!”

*** – see, “Welcome Back, Kotter,” a wonderful sit-com which, years ago, portrayed the antics of a wise-cracking Brooklyn high school teacher, dealing with his wonderful class of exceptionally special students, known as “Sweathogs!”
