I poured some milk into the bowl
Snap! Crackle! Pop!
Crispies crackled cheery greetings
I couldn’t make them stop.
Crickle! Crackle! Snip! Snap!
Snick! Snack! Crack!
As each grain popped its welcome
Another answered back.
I winced and pushed my bowl away,
I couldn’t stand no more!
How can breakfast be so thoughtless
The morning after the night before.
