Sweets are bad, m'kay? A Proto-Queron

The date is Mayish, 2009. I am starting to develop a poetry form. The first proto-queron came in at 15 rather than 17 lines and had this rhyme scheme: ababa bcbca cdcdb.

The content here is pretty fluffy. The exercise was more about the rhyme and syllabification (6 per line, m'kay?). 

In no other poem I recall writing did I use the phrase "Neener-neener-neener," so that's something.

Sweets are bad, m’kay?

Sugary treats are bad
Because they taste so good.
Whenever you have had,
you always know you should
have eaten greens instead,

but almost no one would
opt for something greener
although it’s understood
vegetables are leaner
and make you better fed.

Keep your system cleaner
and eat in tune with truth.
Say “Neener-neener-neener”
to that old sweet tooth
and you’ll be glad you did.
