Why Not Eat With Gusto An Unbuttered Bread? - Poem by RIC BASTASA

at an age
where bad cholesterol reigns
the kingdom
of your veins

do not ever
think of butter
and cream
or jellies
or margarine

eat some unbuttered bread
one that is bland
and even tasteless

they too serve
the palates
of the brave
