The New Tang

 


Of all the weird things going on today
With scientists & politician fame,
About fake news, conspiracies & death,
The way the media is dropping names.

Suggestions coming in for miracles
From bleach & PineSol, household iodine.
You’ll find something under a basin sink
To curing common colds with 409.

But long before COVID-19 arrived,
Were kids who never had enough to eat.
A mix of vitamin and minerals
Was made, enriching food like it was meat.

So comes an age of putting to the test
A powder upon saving lives will hang,
And catering to children’s preferences,
A tasty, new & improved form like Tang!
