The latest “miracle” food, kale is being touted for the nutritional punch it packs, for being anti-inflammatory and cardiac friendly, for cooling down global warming,and for knitting booties for city pigeons in winter.

High in fiber, zero fat
The “Queen of Greens” rules over that
Antioxidants galore
Checks cholesterol at the door

High in iron, and vitamin A
Full of calcium, and vitamin K
Detox properties, and vitamin C
And acts anti-inflammatorily

More iron than beef; heart friendly too
There’s no doubt that it’s good for you
But there is one thing that kale can hurt-
My taste buds, cause it tastes like dirt.
