Poe Corn

Post by Eternum 1 » Mon Apr 08, 2013 6:48 am

Once upon a midnight scurry
my tequila vision weak and blurry
over many a shot that I did pour
becoming sotted, nearly napping
suddenly there came a snapping
of popcorn in a nuker tapping
against the microwave door
popcorn gently tapping
at my microwave door
tis a faulty bag, I muttered,
popping corn that's lightly buttered
contents popping against the door
--only popcorn and nothing more.

Ah, the odeur I recall
of popping corn down the hall;
As each kernel burst upon the door
Eagerly I grabbed a bowl;
– my former roommates, bless her soul
From the cupboard down below –
below the microwave door —
Fill the bowl with surcease of popcorn –
in remembrance for the lost Lenore —
Fill the bowl from the micro
left by the co-ed named Lenore —
Nameless here nevermore.

I always preferred Fritos myself. With plenty of hot Picante Sauce, but I can appreciate one's taste for something different occasionally. :cheers:

" Nay!" said I, "Thou Raven weasel! – Doritos shill, Fritos evil!
By the Redenbacher that leers above us – by the bowtie we both adore —
Tell this soul with salty goodness laden, if within the distant Aidenn,
I shall hold a sainted maiden whom the angels name Lenore —
Hold a rare and radiant maiden, with fingers orange with Cheetos spore?"
Quoth the Raven "Nevermore."

"Over sounds of popcorn farting, bird or fiend!" I shrieked, upstarting —
"Get thee back to the east coast, somewhere near the Jersey shore!
Leave no taco chip as token of the lie thy soul hath spoken!
Leave my popcorn bag unbroken! – leave no sign of a cheetos spore!
Take thy beak from out my heart, and take with you this cheetos spore!"
Quoth the Raven "Nevermore."

And the Raven, still, is sitting, still is sitting
On the bust of Orville just beyond the microwave door;
And his eyes are quite revealing of a doobie hunger feeling ,
And the refrigerator-light comes streaming to throw his shadow on the floor;
And the ash of skunk weed comes floating, floating to the floor
To be smoked – nevermore!

Nay to all those popcorn eaters, from Canucks far western shores
Fritos wasted without salsa,..salted morsels from the store
Corny cronies, dipshit drivers, toss their chips upon the floor
I give up on Popcorn eaters
Quoth the Craven
Nevermore. :mrgreen: :hello: (PS- I don't own a bowtie)

I've decided to start charging for longer speeches. I expect to be competing with Bill Clinton and Tony Robbins on the rubber chicken circuit. :thewave:
