Let's Move!


If only I could find the means
To purchase fruit and collard greens,
I’d leave behind my life-long fling
With Taco Bell and Burger King.

But Taco Bell’s around the block
And Burger King has ample stock
Of hamburger and onion rings
And dollar-menu chicken wings.

It’s good to know I’m not alone,
As two point two percent are known
To live at least a mile past
A place to buy a fresh repast.

But now the USD of A
Is working hard to bring my way
More grocery stores with greens and fruit,
Where I can shop with no commute.

They’ve partnered with Michelle to prove
A program that she named ‘Let’s Move’
Can give to me a healthy smile,
Without the need to walk a mile.

I guess the name ‘Let’s Move’ must mean
We get the stores with fresh cuisine
To move their business down the block,
And cut the distance I must walk.

I’m sure I’ll find the time to stop,
To stroll around and window shop
For all the healthy food they sell,
While on my way to Taco Bell.
