A Poem by Taylor Mali 

An apple a day is not enough. Don t let me start preaching, But shouldn t the children of the country that s the wealthiest, Also be the children of the country that s the healthiest? That makes sense, you d think that would be true, I know I would. I m just saying. Wouldn t you? But that s not the case with our kids these days. Kids health is declining in all kinds of ways.
