Fake food
 

 

in this world of fake things

Nothing is more fake

Than the food we eat

 

Most of the fake food crap we eat

Is nothing but chemicals

And flavorings

 

Added to a small amount

Of real food

 

All packaged and sold

And marketed

 

Scientifically designed to taste good

So we eat the poisoned food

And get sicker and sicker

 

While the food industry giants

Make obscene profits

Selling us poison

 

 

 

Fake coffee

 

 

I used to be a big coffee drinker

Had to have my four or five cups

Of real fresh brewed coffee

 

Not for me the weak instant coffee

Of decafe coffee or herbal fake coffee

 

But over time coffee caught up to me

And now I can not handle the real deal

And I am forced to drink decafe coffee

Which is a kind of fake coffee to me

 

Or herbal coffee

Which is entirely fake

Designed to taste like the real thing

 

But without that caffeine kick

That true coffee drinkers crave

 

Since we are all caffeine addicts at heart

Just need that rush to get going

And keep going

 

And the fake coffee

Just does not do the trick

 

And so, I am doomed

To drink decafe coffee

And fake coffee

 

Missing my real cup of coffee

Until the I enjoy the last drop

 

 

 

Fake vegan meat

 

 

 

When I go to a vegetarian restaurant

I often encounter fake meat

Often called mock meat

 

Made out of soy beans, and other things

And I wonder

Why bother with the façade

 

I mean if you are a vegan

Be a vegan

 

Don’t eat or make fake meat

You don’t need it

You really don’t like it

 

And it is somehow

just wrong to me

 

So please no more fake meat

No more tofu turkey for me

 

Either give me my meat

Or give me my vegan delight

 

from my unpublished chapbook, "fake things" available on my web page https://theworldaccordingtocosmos.com

 

 

Fake fish

 

 

Every where in the world

When you eat fish

In a restaurant

 

The restaurant owners

Claim it is salmon or tuna

Or other delicious fish

 

But the sad reality

60 percent of the time

You are eating fake fish

 

The fish may be fish

Or may not be fish

But if it is indeed fish

It is probably tilapia

 

Or some other cheap

Bottom feeding scumbag fish

Filled with toxins

 

And possibly tape worms

And other parasites

 

And as you eat your delicious fish

You are eating the fake fish

 

And helping the fish industry

Continue this con game

 

But there is nothing you can do

Except for catching your own fish

And preparing it yourself

 

So, when you eat fish

Pretend if you must

 

That you eating salmon or tuna

While you eat your tilapia

And pay the salmon/tuna premium price

 

from my unpublished chapbook, "fake things" available on my web page https://theworldaccordingtocosmos.com

 

 

 

 

 

Fake booze

 

 

I never real understood

The concept of alcohol free booze

Alcohol free beer

Alcohol free wine

I don’t get Mocktales

 

And I don’t get fruit beer

And coffee beer

And other the other weirdo drinks

That people drink these days

 

I mean when you drink booze

You want the alcohol

 

You want the buzz

You need the booze

And you want it now

 

And frankly fake booze

Just does not do it for me

 

So please no fake beer

No mocktails

No fake wine for me

 

As the song puts it

One scotch, one bourbon

And one beer

 

So, either give me the real deal

Or give me a cup of tea

Or coffee or water or juice

 

Or whatever

But don’t serve me fake booze

Fake Bread

 

 

Now a days

Most of the time

I eat fake bread

            GF bread

            For health reasons

            My wife can’t tolerate the real thing

            And so,

 

I eat fake bread

            Fake pasta

            Fake pizza

 

            But every so often

            I want the real deal    

            I crave bread

            Made with wheat

 

            And a real pizza

            And real pasta

And real donuts

 

 

from my unpublished chapbook, "fake things" available on my web page https://theworldaccordingtocosmos.com 

 

 

Fake Eggs

 

 

I love real eggs

From real chicken

 

Preferably free range

Vegetarian fed,

No antibiotic feed

 

No hormones added

Non-caged chickens,

 allowed to roam about

 

As God intended

them to do

 

Not locked up

In chicken coop hell

 

            But now

            We have so many choices

           

 We can have fake eggs

             Without any cholesterol

             Or yoke

           

 Tastes like real chicken eggs

             At least they claim

           

But who knows what’s real

            Any more

           

Can you trust

            The chicken is real?

 

from my unpublished chapbook, "fake things" available on my web page https://theworldaccordingtocosmos.com

 

 

 

Fake Bacon

 

 

It seems that bacon

Has come back from the dead

And is everywhere these days

 

There is even bacon ice cream

Bacon whiskey

Bacon tacos

 

Yeh I love bacon

But I don’t like the fake bacon

 

You can get beef bacon

Turkey bacon

Tofu bacon

 

All look like bacon

Taste like bacon

Cook like bacon

Seems to be bacon

 

But it is all sham

Nothing real about it

 

Just another fake healthy food

In a long line

Of fake food products

 

Designed to get our money

Out of our pockets

And into their greedy little arms

 

So, I resist

I want the real deal

I want bacon real bacon

With my real eggs

 

And if it means

I am fated

 

To die of a real heart attack

At least I will die

A real man

 

from my unpublished chapbook, "fake things" available on my web page https://theworldaccordingtocosmos.com

Fake KFC

There is a joke

That many years ago

KFC was ordered to change

Their name

 

From Kentucky Fried Chicken

To KFC

 

Because according to the court

The chicken contained only 10 percent chicken meat

The rest was chemicals, soy and other extenders

And the chicken was not fried

And not made anymore

in Kentucky

 

That may or not be true

But  I did visit the KFC museum

Near the highway rest stop

Where the first KFC opened up

 

Back when they produced real fried chicken

From chickens sourced in Kentucky

And it was 100 percent chicken meat

With spices etc

No extenders at all

 

I toured the museum

But did not eat there

 

Last time I ate at a KFC

Was in Sapporo Japan

When my co-workers

Insisted on a American fast food lunch

 

I got sick from the KFC

My body just could not handle

The chemicals anymore

 

And so,

I never went back

And never will

 

 

Fake Mc Donald’s

 

Mc Donald’s is the king

Of the fake food industry

 

Their burgers are unnatural abominations

If you leave the burgers out for days

You can still cook them

And that ain’t natural

And ain’t right

 

No one knows really

What is in the burgers

That is a corporate secret

 

But one knows

That it can’t be good for you

 

I lost my taste for Mc Donald’s

And Burger King and Wendy’s

About ten years ago

 

I last ate at Burger King in St Lucia

And ate at Mc Donalds in India

 

Mc Donalds in India

Is not allowed to serve beef

They finally settled on a chicken burger

As their burger of choice

 

Wisely abandoning the Raja mutton burger

Which just tasted horrible

The veggie burgers were the best though

 

But I still crave a burger

And will eat at other chains

Or gourmet burger places

 

But the sad reality

The burgers are all the same

Ten percent beef

The rest chemicals and extenders

 

One day a study came out

Linking eating fast food burgers

To ED among men

 

And that may be true

It is also true

That eating fast food daily

is courting death at an early age

 

One day the CEO of Burger King

Came out

In a Press conference

To denounce the movie

Super Size me

 

He said

“Fast food burgers are perfectly safe

And delicious

I had a Whopper for lunch”

 

Then he collapsed and died

From a massive heart attack

 

Poetic justice

At work

 

 

 

 

Fake healthy Food

 

The evil food industry executives

Are on to us

They proclaim

That they get it

They need to sell us healthier food

 

And so, they present

all sorts of so-called healthy food

For us to consume

 

Only problem

The food is still

the chemical enhanced fake food

they always make

 

25 percent real ingredients

75 percent chemicals and extenders

 

they just slap a healthy choice label on it

charge you double

and proclaim it is healthier for you

than the other crap they sell

 

but no processed food is healthy

only food created from scratch

can be considered healthy food

 

So, as you enjoy

your healthy choice fake food

just remember this

it is still fake food

still poison

but boy does it taste good
