Diets Are Mean

Kelechi Ihejirika

Green, green, green
is all you want me to eat.
But it costs so much green,
it’s cheaper to buy a sweet.
My tooth is satisfied.
Oh how this sweet feels me up.
But quickly it gets me sick,
or leaves me with hiccups.
It’s mostly the soda.
But the chips do its bidding.
Maybe I’ll settle for almonds.
4.99! You gotta be kidding!
