This seems to be an incest cycle

CATULLUS 89

He's so much slighter than you'd ever guess.

Why not? His mum's the apple of his eye

Such healthy lives – she never bakes a pie

Too fattening. His sister's more or less

a health freak too. The uncle's really fit.

Works out a lot, though never at the gym,

and mostly it's the weight that presses him.

So nice to see a family closely knit.

Third cousins, nieces, the adopted brat

grandma acquired while on a trip to France

Half-naked nephews wrestling half-dressed aunts

This fitness kick is rather more than that.

Incest's the vice that really keeps them thin.

They've lost the taste for anything but sin.
