Waitin’ for White Bread

They’re lining up for white bread at the store.
Of course it’s tasty, but it’s toxic too.
Your body has a natural stop – no more
protein or salt or fat, it signals you
when you exceed your limit, or before.
But no self-regulation says you’re through
with carbohydrate silage. So beware
of paying for that taste with chronic care.

(Ottava Rima)
