John Marsden Writing Topic #84

Write a spell that’ll make someone get fatter**

To the shallow,

who never have to watch their shadow

now you will pay.

Experience the pain

of being judged for weight gain,

from thin to thick

you now will switch

see through their eyes,

live as a different size

from now until tomorrow

or until you learn from the sorrow

that you inflict.
