Just Saying

Wives tales passed down the ages
Oral traditions dating back well before pen and ink
Are all true, or so we are led to think
But …
Chocolate doesn’t cause acne
And while fish as food for the brain is almost right
Carrots won’t help you see at night
Reading in a dim room
Doesn’t cause damage to your eyes
And as to spicy food giving you an ulcer … that’s just lies
Wet hair in the rain makes you ill
But feeding a cold and starving a fever
Is simple not true for either
So remember …
Although we may think that Grannie knows best
Science proves old proverbs may just jest
