May sometimes appear illegible
It’s a secret code you can’t read
So why have them, what’s the need?
Things like sugar, sucrose or sodium
We’re familiar with those, we’re not dumb
But then as you read further on
You find trace metals of iron and boron
Chromium, acetate, lecithin and more
Chrome? Not buying a car, I’m in a food store!
Add in erythritol, calcium, and hydrochloride
Is this vitamin water or a box of Tide?
Shopping takes time to pick what you need
Allow even more for the labels to read
Toxicity warnings? I find that incredible
Aren’t these foods supposed to be edible?
