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
