Empty Calories


Looking for a snack to eat,

I searched the pantry

For a treat,


And found...


Cracker sleeves, opened wide,

(Naught but crumbs

Left inside),


Boxes, plundered; NEATLY LINED,

Hiding empty bags,



From baking chips (sneaked as snacks),

And ransacked cans

Of Pringles Stacks,


Near old marshmallows (hard as rocks).

So, I just gnawed

A cardboard box.
