Die Diet Die!
There is no diet I’ve not tried
All tasty food’s been vilified
Now struck from list of things to eat
You can’t have bread, avoid red meat
To eat less carbs is all the rage
For war against fat has been waged
The goal seems not to help lose weight
But empty purse as much as plate
And yet we clamour for advice
At every turn and every price
Enough already, of this I’m sick!
But look what’s trending - Ozempic!
To some it seems a miracle
You need not eat to feel you’re full
You’ll drop such pounds your head will spin
And soon you’ll join the ranks of “thin”
For that is what we value most
To look the same as dressed lamp post
How we define good form and wellness
No longer is it health and fitness
It’s how we look, not how we feel
And yet, do we know what is real?
Our very bods are battlefields
And diets are the arms we wield
This war on food seems such a waste
And ironically, leaves bitter taste…
