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.
