Choices

Postby Jonnie Falafel » Mon Aug 19, 2013 10:26 am

Twenty brands of cornflakes
On the supermarket shelf.
A myriad minor choices -
"But is there something else?"

Sixty flavours of jam,
A hundred kinds of pop.
Tons of trivial choices -
But only one place to shop.

(US readers, Pop is soda!)

Haha... there's the name I've been looking for, but with a NEW poem, instead! Fully appreciate this, Jonnie!
To those from the northern part of the U.S., soda IS pop. I didn't encounter the word soda until I came south. Now, I actually prefer it, as it's more accurate... though soda does POP, in the mouth and stomach.

So the majority of the population would have understood me! That's what I get from too many Hollywood movies! I did this poem because I know some of my others need a bit of commitment to get to the end... Hope you are well and thanks once again for reading. :D

ALWAYS read your poems and postings, Jonnie.
Yep, most here would have gotten that... since those in the South pretty much know that those in the North call it pop.
