Oleomargarine – The fake version of real butter. It doesn’t provide good nutrition. You’re better off eating the real thing.


My daddy told me

In nineteen forty –three

Oleo-margarine is axle grease

For the wagons


Is fine to grease the shoes

And good butter

Is for people to eat

If they work hard

And want to stay healthy


Seventy years later

We now find

This to be true

But no one cares


Now the food processors

Have the control handle

And they can’t ask my daddy

What should be done


Shelf life is important

And seasonings that delight

Is what sells the food

And keeps the customers happy


And no one asks

My Daddy-o
