philosophy is the talk on a cereal box

 (a semi-found poem, with sheepish apologies to Edie Brickell…and possibly Kellogg’s) 

Oh, Life
You fragile, fleeting, floating thing
(snap, crackle, pop)
with your
c  r  u  n  c  h
up to your old Trix
with your puffs and your oats
and your
when Lucky,
not without your Charms
but more often soggy
as a dog’s smile.

Silly rabbit.
Serving size may vary.

      “… religion is the smile on a dog.” Love the Edie references. I listen to that CD all the time. 🙂

      Loved the ending: “serving size may vary.” Cute.

  1. I love Edie AND cereal!! This is a hit with me Miss De!
