Paula Deen the Butter Queen

Paula Deen the Butter Queen

By Elton Camp and María Camp

She is the butter makers’ delight
To nutritionists, she is a fright
Krispy Kreme with eggs and bacon
Great health risks are thus taken

Her bacon cheeseburger meatloaf
Is perfect if you are a gigantic oaf
For a nation that is already too fat
She sees nothing wrong with that

People who her cookbooks buy
Eat such and may too soon die
She had diabetes for three years
With no caution to change gears. 

Her cookbooks flying 
Right off the shelf
Likely contributing
To early death

It tastes good, she decreed!
Many folks with her agreed
So many calories, but it is so good
Eat whatever you like is what you should

After her disease she finally shared
To represent a diabetes drug she dared
Cigarettes warn, but not Paula Deen
Of butter, sugar and fat – she is queen

To “that word” she admitted use
There are allegations of other abuse
One is suing and wanting some dough
Is this former employee in the know?

An awkward apology, she did make
How many attempts does it take?
One wonders if she is sincere
Or if it is just fear for career

Whatever happens in the days ahead
Is her heyday officially dead?
Don’t be quick to rule her out
She still has pull and clout
