Who sheds his mournful tear.

Ginger ale especially “diet’

Generally doesn’t cause a taste riot…

Often watered down,

I’m glad it’s around

But its flavoring is rather quiet.

But in my grocery store,

I’ve found an elixir with more…

Than the usual kick

And it won’t make me sick,

At least hardly like before!

Is my new-found friend

As means to an end,

Pulls my taste buds within the veil.

No high-sugar corn syrup rabble,

Just concentrate juice..grape and apple…

Three ginger sources

Like  troika of horses,

The team rendered strong and ample.

Filtered sparkling water

And fruit sugars promise no slaughter….

In nice ginger ale

Flavor not so pale,
