Call it what you want
(depends on where you’re from).
It’s just a fizzy drink,
and arguing is dumb.
Some call it simply “soda,”
while others call it “pop.”
And any brand can be a “coke;”
it’s all just sugar-slop.
There’s no need to debate it,
or make fun of someone’s drink.
To pop a vein over soda semantics
is silly, don’t you think?

Lololol…where I grew up in the South, sodas were all coke or a drink. Which up north a drink was alcohol. Yez it is silly to argue over soda semantics but hey, any excuse to argue, right???
I love this!!!
And I call it “soda pop,” just for funsies. 🙂
