Health Care Costs (Poem 361)

Wash your veggies, cut them up,
And juice a green drink every day.
Let cow's milk never touch your cup!
Throw your whole-wheat bread away.
Make smoothies from fresh, organic fruit,
(Or frozen if you're in a rush).
Bake yams--the more nutritious root,
Not buttery, white-potato mush.
No meat! Eat varied beans and rices,
Cut out all sugar and caffeine!
Don't complain about high prices,
Or being too tired to cook and clean!
Too sick or poor to afford eating healthy?
Who cares? It's the privilege of the wealthy.
