THE DIET MOXIE CRITIQUE


THE DIET MOXIE CRITIQUE

He bought some DIET MOXIE*

Noticing the brand new can,

And different were the bottles….

It looked like an exciting brand.

The taste wasn’t what he remembered

When younger it smelled and had bite,

No aftertaste with this stuff…

Didn’t taste like the stuff he had liked.

Ingredients were still on the label,

In order as memory served…

“Distinctly Different” said the words on the can

But its formula seemed to have swerved.

The bitter aftertaste was gone,

The formula seemed much sweeter….

One wonders how they can make the stuff

With less gentian root* per liter!

But of course it’s a new generation,

The old farts are dying out fast….

Old tastes must be skewed to new realities

So the comp’ny that bought it can last.
