So, duh

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?
