Soda-Sadness Haikus

Sodas, oh sodas,
Why are you so unhealthy
When you taste so good?

Oh soda makers,
Why is it so hard to make
Freaking healthy drinks?

Phosphorus is bad
Caramel coloring’s bad
Life’s getting grayer.

A healthy soda,
My kingdom for good soda!
Five more syllables.

Life without root beer
Is life without a defense
To counter pure evil.

Sodas, unhealthy.
Why? Why? Why? Why? Why? Why? Why?
Why? Why? Why? Why? Why?


– Paul De Lancey, The Comic Chef
