Oh For The Good Old Days - Poem by Stanley Cooper

Oh, for the good old days

Of savory cooking scents
Seeping through our kitchen vents
From delicious home-made foods
We fed our loving broods

No MacDonalds, Burger Kings
Gulped fast-foods on the wing
With saturated fat
And indigestion it begats

Healthy dishes our intake
Unprocessed foods is what we ate
When we were more inclined
To stay at home and family dine

Oh, for the good old days
