“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!
* – 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!! 🙂
