Popcorn Reality


Making popcorn takes about
as much effort as being real
cheerful about life – there’s
no chance to get atop of it
lest preordained, ‘tho laws
of energy conservation play
a thermodynamic bedlam
in smarter popping rates

Waited an age for a nub of
corn to spin – time wasted
actually, while real wheels
spun casually from torque
related wages in forces
you couldn’t see
