A new “dark” ginger ale,

Like ginger beer but “pale”…

Gives a kick

A wicked pick,

Very hearty and hale!

A problem you can see,

It’s made with genetically…

Engineered stock

Some think crock,

Examine labels carefully!

Don’t know if all brands are so,

But check those labels to know…

For me ginger beer*

Is better my dear,

The sugar content’s greater, though!

I bought some for a treat,

And knew already how sweet…

Would be this drink–

Tastes good, I think,

 But genetic engineering—worth a “tweet”?

–Jonathan Caswell

*All ginger beer, unless otherwise labelled or noted, is nonalcoholic.
