Yes, We Can!

We can hope. We can love. We can respect.
We can peaches. We can garbanzo beans.
We can those creepy little baby corns.
We can peas. We can diced carrots. We can
tomato puree, water, high fructose
corn syrup, wheat flour, citric
acid, salt, and potassium chloride.
We can cooked enriched pasta with meatballs.

We can chicken broth, corn, cooked white chicken
meat, potatoes, celery, and onions.
We can diet shakes. We can pumpkin pie.
We can hope. We can love. We can respect.
We also box, bottle, and sometimes jar,
but yes, we can, better than anyone.

  2. I like how this reads. When you first hit the second line, it almost hurts your brain because it reads so wrong – then you get it. Very witty.
