A poem of lies

Fast food caused this
but here's the good news
Diabetes is reversible
Just lace up your shoes!

Get some exercise
And eat your food raw
Add a dash of cinnamon
No go, tell your Ma.

No more glucose checks
and she can sleep through the night
Just follow these instructions friends
and it will all be all right.

(This was written as part of the Health Activist Writer Monthly Challenge to write a poem where every line is a lie or misconception about your disease).
