Artificial Drinks


I tell you it's evil, an

Temptation of awfulness

That dupes many perpetually

With commercial success.

What is this fascination

With lemonade and tea

And carbonated sodas?

They do naught to refresh me.

These are artificial beverages,

They merely augment thirst and have dregs.

Their packaging authenticates freshness;

Water never needed jazzy bottles or kegs.

It was always readily enough

And plentifully consumed.

But packaging sells capitalism;

One day they'll all be plumed.

Haven't these people heard of water?

It is what fulfills.

A lack of this mercury,

Platinum-valued drink kills.

I wrote this when I was 17. Glad someone appreciate it. I haven't always been vegan/organic (not until the last year) but I've always been pretty close to it.
