“WE’RE GONNA EAT AND BE HAPPY!”*  a poem  Sept. 13, 2018

“WE’RE GONNA EAT AND BE HAPPY!”* a poem Sept. 13, 2018 (Thursday) Karaoke tonight! at Ole Crystal Bar, on Holland Avenue – about 10:00 P. M.?

EAT WHAT YOU LIKE – so, you’ll never-overeat!

That’s the-way-we-KIDZ-did-it! – It-was pretty darn neat!

We ate what we had! Not-organic-(but) (pause) NOT BAD;

We ate some meat and milk –

They hadn’t-(yet)-come up with SILK!**

AND WE LIVED LIFE AS BEST WE COULD,

It was a little dull, but BASICALLY GOOD!!

But! we didn’t FOCUS – on much EXTREMES,

In the area-of-perfect-diets, whatever that means!!

And-then – a few years went by,

And people are asking “WHY?”

“is everyone apparently so sick?”

AND – THE ANSWER, RIGHT QUICK:

Was: IT M U S T BE “WRONG DIET!!”

So – NEW FOOD NOTIONS – and-did-we-EVER-buy-IT!!

YOU BET! enter: WHOLE FOODS!*** and lots o’ coffee!!

SKIP SALAMI! and – easy on the toffee!

And THAT’S SURE TO AFFECT –

FAILING HEALTH-but – IT WRECKED,

OUR FOOD BUDGETS! And – we forget to just eat,

WHAT WAS THERE! (which, sometimes, included meat!!) 🙂 – !!

And NOW – there are societies – special hospitals – and – RETREATS,

All focused on FOOD, eating better – AND – Nothing beats,

DAILY CONCERNS ABOUT EVERY MEAL SELECTION:

It’s about SUPER CONSCIOUSNESS – and rigorous predilection!!

And, SO? Where are we at? (not) “LIVE-TO-EAT-EAT-TO-LIVE?!”

A little advice – our descendants would give!

Which-meant: IF YOU DON’T JUST EAT WHAT YOU GOT,

IF YOUR SELECTIONS-ARE-SO-PARTICULAR-F O R THE-COOKING-POT,

JUST SO SELECTIVE AND UNIQUE,

YOU’LL BE [LIVING FOR FOOD!!] WHICH-IS [LIVING TO EAT!!] –

And, NOW, our nutrition has become SO OBTUSE,

And we’ve let imagination – run completely – so loose,

By WATCHING – EVERY SINGLE, HARD-FOUGHT BITE,

To make sure, TO MAKE S U R E that everything’s (just) right,

It’s diminished what happiness & pleasure life offers,

BY MAKING US WORRIED – (pause)

& DRAINING (emptying) THE COFFERS!

fin. ❤

* – Well, as happy as you can be AROUND HERE!! 🙂 – in this TRICKY PLACE!

** – Silk brand soybean milk! 🙂 – organic is the best – unsweetened is the best – or, at least, drink ORGANIC milk – which is twice the price, IF you’re lucky! ❤

*** – Whole Foods Markets – Your whole check goes for your whole foods!! 🙂
