Food for Thought-Am I The Only One Without A Tattoo?

Am I the only one without a tattoo,
No designs on my body,
Lacking any images which might make you spew,
I feel so left out this time of year,
When tank tops and sagging skin debut,
What must this island think of me,
A world traveler who hasn’t accrued,
Images of Buddha, Jesus, or the moon,
My legs, arms, and neck eschew,
All signs of needles and permanent ink,
I would much rather be bald old me,
Or be forced to eat day old fondue,
Than get some kind of tattoo,
But if that’s what you like,
That’s cool too.
