For the person on a health kick
who's eating healthy food.
Just by asking how they started
you could never quite conclude.
For the reasons still unknown
where the opposite is true.
Instead of starting good food,
quiting bad food's what you'll do.
For bad food's very plenty
and good food's very rare.
That when skipping all the bad foods
very few foods do you bare.
For few things make it easy
to choose what you will eat.
And a panic's not as likely
as to force you to retreat.
For this story has a moral.
Not to fear the change in food.
But to learn what food is healthy
just by what you can exculde.
