Coke Cola

Coke Cola is ZERO now.
Is that zero for nutrition? And HOW?
Perhaps it is
Zero for health and Zero for wealth too.
Because  ZERO coke is a dentist's delight
And your accountant will get a jolly fright
When he sees you have spent thousands of $
On crates of the jolly black stuff, sugar loaded
Additives galore and colouring what's more.
What's this he says, $10,000 on dentist's bills
for five teeth pulled. Whatever for?
They were rotten to the core.
You reply. You see, I had Zero the new cola
In my baby's bottle, before I could toddle.
My first teeth turned as black as my favourite tipple
and for a while I had a cute gap toothed grin
Before my second lot appeared, grimly
edged in black, like funeral notices,
I had them whitened and the dentist told me
You shouldn't drink soda and stay off coke cola
Especially ZERO or you'll be seeing me again
 Before the year is out, without a doubt.
It will not be joy, it will not be social, but pain
for your mouth and your bank account.
After years of Zero Cola consumption
It will be possible your head to mount
On wall as a warning to the nation
your wisdom teeth blackened or gone
Your molars mere stumps
Your eyes shining like lamps in the night
Filled with sugar crush delight
Your hair limp and falling out
Your flesh cured and leathery
puckers at the corners of your mouth
Where you sucked from the bottle.
Zero cola, Zero Nuitrition, Zero on everything
Your health sucked into a black whirlpool
of disease and toxic overload.
You are better to find a well
Drink water and water and water
to flush your kidneys
Stave off diabetes.
So Zero out on the Zero Cola forever now...
