Refuse to change

    Refuse to change

    The taste of lunch,
    the taste of death,
    the taste our bakers
    are daily putting on the shelf;

    The taste of sugars,
    the taste of sweets,
    the taste of appeal
    will lay one cool, calm, beneath;

    The taste of salts
    that resides in our face,
    Who is at fault
    for the foods on our plates?

    Who can be accused, who can be blamed,
    when our health is yet poor, and we still refuse to change?

    This is deep, true and can be applied to any appetite. Well articulated and precise.

    Just ain't no love in the Food. Fellow poets & I had a challenge to all write a poem on food and it was very interesting what we all came up with. Check out my 'Food for Thought' certainly it makes anyone 'Refuse to Change' great write!

    Ain't that the truth.

    Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.

    Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
