Folks say some foods will cause a flare,
Then they put statistics everywhere.
Oh the things we should not eat!!!
Potatoes, night shade veggies and wheat,
White rice, sugar, tomatoes and meat,
Peanuts, corn, beans and citrus fruit,
milk, cheese, eggs and soda pop.

‘If’  there is a magic bullet for RA,
A food to make the pain go away…
Guide me to it’s refrigerator…
And tell my arthritis  “I’ll see ya later!”
I wish each person was the same,
With one avoidable food to blame,
Like fish or celery or peas or carrots,
Or some yucky food on our taste palettes.
