Arsenic and Old Lace

 Arsenic and Old Lace

(or: An apple a day keeps the doctor in business)



What once was

so wholesome, basic

has become contaminated.

Cash waxed as nutrition waned.

Meddled with and mucked up over time

when money became the bigger prize.

Historically the healthy one, but

greed in the Garden of Eden

has left behind a legacy

of arsenic & lead.
