Alka-Seltzer

The heavy foods that I've ingested
Have settled in my gut and nested
And from within I clearly hear
The sound of an eruption near
                                                     Alka-Seltzer!

The steak, the beans, the curly fries,
The chicken soup, assorted pies
Straight to my gut a drink escorted
But soon I fear will be deported
                                                     Alka-Seltzer!

To uncertain fate these foods convicted
To be digested or evicted
I'm sick from this volcanic mix
Which I hope a pill will fix
                                                     Alka-Seltzer!

I drive out to the pharmacy
And rush in for the remedy
Surprised by an expected mess
I must go home and there re-dress
                                                     Alka-Seltzer!

    A funny reminder of where we've all been! why don't they just put alka-seltzer in the food, then we don't have anything to worry about;)

    This was fun, I almost wanted to chime in with "Pop pop Fizz Fizz". Thanks for the early morning chuckle. Have a great Sunday and thanks for reading my poem.
