I tinkered with fad diets
Of kefir, quinoa and kale
Nibbling on nutrients foraged from a fertile earth
Yet these fresh foods were pretentiously plain
And robbed me of the fatty flavors
That boosted my bland life
I hope to forge healthier habits
To build a satisfied life
Without giving up cheeseburgers and fries
I might discover joy
In daily power naps…
