WHOLE FOODS

(to the tune of "Blue Moon")

Whole Foods
You saw me sickly and thin
Without a blush on my cheek
Without a glow to my skin.



Whole Foods
You knew you just had to heed me
You saw the way you should lead me
And had the health food to feed me.

And then I saw there was a cornucopia
Of all the nuts and grains I could consume
(I know I have to use the rhyme “Utopia”)
And when I ate, my cheek began to bloom.

Whole Foods
Now I’m not sickly and thin
Without a blush on my cheek
Without a glow to my skin.

I ate organic goat cheese and quinoa
Wheatberry, kale, seaweed and tofu, too
Some dingleberries shipped fresh from Samoa
And pomegranates flown in from Peru.

Whole Foods
My LDL is now 5
Systolic down to 16
I think I’m barely alive.

Whole Foods

My LDL is now 5
I have a blush on my cheek
But I am barely alive.

A cornucopia
