Have you heard about the latest ploy

Have you heard about the latest ploy? To deploy soy, Into everything I enjoy, My tastebuds to destroy. Never mind that an allergy to soy, Could affect your boy, Or that flour in anything you buy has been bulked up with Soy, Or that there is no room in the product for what used to meet your joy. I almost forgot to mention that freedom to choose anything but Soy, May soon be something else you may no longer enjoy, As corn fields take a hit as they are replaced by soy As planting of Soy is now common on American soil and jobs too will be based on Soy. With a free glass of soy milk during your break from planting soy. Once your taste buds are destroyed by soy, How will we tell if our hamburger is the real McCoy? And that is not the only ploy, You will see them deploy, As mountains of salted caramel go into what does not contain soy. The good news is there is still time for a counter ploy, If we home bake and push up again the demand for the real McCoy, But remember time is running out for you to deploy, Before your taste buds they destroy.

Not much that is not poison in larger quantities. A varied diet is key. Thank you so much for reading. I was watching documentary on how aid to poor countries is managed and that good intentions often have opposite effect. I am glad there is a shift appearing to buy local where available when giving aid, it makes it viable for farmers etc to keep producing. Stay safe David in NZ

I am from Iowa. Soy will never be “the real McCoy” to my corn-fed beef eating family. Well done.

Variety in diet is important if the population is to stay healthy. Also I detest with a passion how food is being bulked up with who knows what. It is almost impossible to by bread without soy in it in NZ now even the in store bakeries. We have got stage if Soy crops fail it will be like the potato famine. We have a big enough garden at our house and most things have been self seeding for years so we can feel safe about some of what we eat. Glad i am not only one who has issue with soy in everything. Just glad we have poetry that is genuine. keep posting. Regards David
