It comes to mind that we should not
Be eating foods that will not rot!
Good foods degenerate, decay
A safe-guard, Mother Nature’s way.
We wisely fear the various modes
By which our food value erodes.
Old enemies forefathers knew
Have now been joined by quite a few.
We seal things up with all our might
To keep out bugs who feast at night.
Left-overs, both the hot and cold
We carefully inspect for mold.
With increased harried mode of life
Convenience food spares us some strive.
And we can find all sorts of things
Pre-packed so we can eat like kings.
Foods modified genetically
Gassed, x-rayed, sealed hermetically.
Let me suggest this test to you
To hold some foods a week or two.
And make some notes, so you will know
What foods not even flies will blow.
What value do you think it’s got
If God’s wee creatures shun the lot?
