Thursday Thoughts - On BPAs, Plastic and Packaged Food
Dearest Prince of Plastic,
It would be really fantastic
(though it may sound drastic)
if you could banish fakery,
poverty, slavery and trickery
in your kingdom of plasticity.
and their evil infectious ways,
but just realized in recent days
that it's in, on or near everything I buy!
Why must BPAs haunt and taunt me? Why?!
The tupperware I bought isn't safe enough
to heat food in and extra dish work is rough.
And what about all those convenience foods?
Is anything wrapped in plastic safe dudes?
Those BPAs could really alter our moods...
I'm a single gal with little time to cook
who tries to eat healthy but can still, with one look,
count ten or more suspicious items within view
that might have BPAs that could harm you.
Since the FDA won't stand up for us (Who's to gain?),
I thought you could bless your kingdom and wane
the use of low quality plastics that cause us pain.
There must be some other, better use to suit their style.
Perhaps you could just put them on welfare for a while?
Thanks for your help!
