Popcorn

The meal was over so he set down his fork
Stuffed to the brim of his belly
He stretched back in his seat and closed his eyes
It was a damn fine meal of pork and jelly.
No more food ever again he said
With ringing in his ear like a buzz
But then he heard his wife crunching something warm and nice
So he struggled to see what it was.
He asked of his wife from where he sat
Is that popcorn you munch over there
Are you not full she responded but he lashed out in kind
I SAID IS THAT POPCORN YOU BEAR!?
It was over before it began
He was sprawled on the floor forlorn
His body had taken the rumpled shape
Of one thousand kernel popcorn.
The evening was ending but then suddenly he heard
The crisp breach of a seal broke
So from his bloated body immobile on the floor
He asked his wife is that coke?
