Fat is simply to much

of me, of you, when a little will due. But supersize is the rule of them,

and they, and we, and us.

Hide the cream, put down the sugar, I want a life that is longer

with less of me.

This is an example of the beauty of poetic prose. It is made so that each individual can find his or her response. For you, it is "not sure".<br />

Only the author truly knows what is behind the scenes of the writing. <br />
<br />
The core meaning is simple: The big "them, they, we and us" are collective entities that have forces bearing upon our identity. We gain ideas from them of how "I"and "You" should be. They, through media, become an ideology that is transfered into personal pressure on "me" and "you" to look and act a certain way.<br />
"Me" and "you" can take one small part of this ideology, such as the idea of being thin, and follow "their" logic that one way to get thin is to deprive one's self of sugar and cream. The crazy thing about our society is that the same "they" has ALSO created the "supersize" meal at the fast food and take out restraunts!! "Me" and "you" are FREE to decided to reject the entire message and eat our sugar and cream. The implied meaning behind that rejection of the messaages of "them", is that "me" and "you" can think independently and remain what "they" consider to be fat, OR "me" and "you" can continue to eat the cream and sugar, yet find other ways to decrease calories and remain thin.

I must admit, I'm not sure what you're saying here! :D
