(Please hum the theme to 'Mission Impossible' as you read about the challenge).

Good evening, Poet deVine. Your challenge should you accept it will be to write about a mundane, though tasty, everyday object.  The Pop Tart!  If you chose to accept this assignment and are apprehended, the Challenger will disavow any knowledge of Pop Tarts and Poets!

The Pop Tart War
It was known as the Pop Tart War
And laughed about for years after
But for those involved it was not
A cause for jovial laughter

Three friends shared a flat in town
Becoming close as friends could be
They spent so much time together
Their friends called them The Three

The Three, two men and a girl
Spent hours talking about life
The guys both secretly agreed
That she would make a good wife

One morning, perhaps in June
The Three slept in that day
Til one by one they woke up
More hungry than they could say

They met in the kitchen
And began to chatter away
But when she took the last Pop Tart
That started the fateful melee

“You always were a pig” he said
“How can you call me this?
You told me I was beautiful!
Even tried to steal a kiss!”

The other guy, dumfounded
“You tried to kiss her too?
You jerk! Why did you do that?
She’ll not love a creep like you!”

The name-calling went on
Well into that Sunday night
Bags were packed, cars loaded
As they continued to fight

In the middle of the night
The friendship torn apart
A mouse crept in and ate
The last Cinnamon Pop Tart.

LOL - great poem there PdV!

Clever, funny, enjoyable

A pop tart is a rectangular shaped fruity filled pastry that you pop into the toaster to heat. Now, you have the plain, the one's with frosting, and then varios fillings, blueberry, strawberry, etc, etc, and they are disgusting!. I buy them every week at the grocery store.

Set every threadbare sail-
And give her to the god of storms,
The lightning and the gale!
