14 Carrot proposition

That's me, a prof of veganomics,
Roughage, seeds and clean colonics,
Leaves and stems and fruity tonics.

Wanna live 'till nigh forever?
Then shun fish and flesh and leather.
Take nothing wearing skin or feather.

Eat that which living springs from soil
Raw, or lightly steamed - don't boil.
Give up creams and eggs and oil.

Lord of turnip, kale and apple,
In vale of nourishment I grapple
With gods of fast-foods' deep-fried chapel.

Join me now for healthy crunch,
Fibrous, filling, healthy munch,
Because it's almost time for lunch.

Thanks to The Mag
