    The Health-Food Diner

    No sprouted wheat and soya shoots
    And Brussels in a cake,
    Carrot straw and spinach raw,
    (Today, I need a steak).

    Not thick brown rice and rice pilaw
    Or mushrooms creamed on toast,
    Turnips mashed and parsnips hashed,
    (I’m dreaming of a roast).

    Health-food folks around the world
    Are thinned by anxious zeal,
    They look for help in seafood kelp
    (I count on breaded veal).

    No smoking signs, raw mustard greens,
    Zucchini by the ton,
    Uncooked kale and bodies frail
    Are sure to make me run

    Loins of pork and chicken thighs
    And standing rib, so prime,
    Pork chops brown and fresh ground round
    (I crave them all the time).

    Irish stews and boiled corned beef
    and hot dogs by the scores,
    or any place that saves a space
    For smoking carnivores.
    — Maya Angelou
