I've started to play around with some different styles of poetry lately. This piece was born from my play.

Fifty percent less fat

Than the regular 
With no hydrogenated oils,
Preservatives or cholesterol
Stand out for attention.
Vanilla cake with
Mystery words are out of the mix.
Fair trade cup of the old Joe's kind has perks and
Salt of the sea and sauce of the soy
With red wine, balsamic, and rice vinegar,
Make a splash in my book.
Macaroni of the bleached kind 
Is now discriminated against
The dark wheat kind,
And yet some 
Wheat Thins really aren't
What they claim.
It all comes down to a label
Because nothing processed
Is something gained.
