First World Food Problems

I'm a rooty-tooty snooty foodie snob
No broccoli for me, I eat broccoli rabe
   Prosciutto that's not Parma
   could clearly kill my karma
and a steak well-done just makes my temples throb

I'm a he-man vegan, I'm so gluten-free
no paleo, GMO, or Frankenfood for me
   And now it's hip to shrink
   from Himalayan pink
From now on my salt is Gaea from the sea

I'm a double-wide, chicken-fried, fast-food freak
Mickey D's and KFC shaped me quite unique
    While shopping at the mart
    in my electric cart
I can snack and drink and show off my physique

I'm a prissy missy, sissy carnivore
Meat disguised and sanitized I just adore
    Any trace of blood or bone
    is not something I condone
and its provenance is something I ignore
