Junk

Meshack Bwoyele Keya 1960 (Vihiga)

Not you are sick.
You didn't eat right.
Junk food prick.
They are the cause of our plight.
Our lifestyle stink.
I hate them alright.
Why go for junk?
When good food is in sight.


It is a matter of choice.
What do you choose between junk and nutrition.
We have paid a high price.
We made wrong choice by intuition.
French fries are on the rise.
Fruits are no longer fruitation.
Why go for junk?
When good food is in sight.

Sickness has been made.
It be no longer a mistake.
We have left food grade.
And a useless take.
Cancers with life do trade.
Ulcers on pans do bake.
Why go for junk?
When good food is in sight.

I end on a sad note.
Take your life seriously.
Nutrients in food do sought.
Avoid eating carelessly.
Junk on tables be nought.
Do not take life hopelessly.
Why go for junk?
When good food is in sight.
