Popcorn Love, Ice Cream Intent

Explosive birth pains with attendant white noise 
With a will to prevail that’s just short of ice cream
And like popcorn, such friends are a "pop" in a pan
That has no aftertaste for this love’s just a dream.

Expect lots of fiber if plumbing is clogged,
With most calories sugar, digestion’s no sweat,
As it comes, so it goes, if you’re into such things,
But a quick high and methane are all that you’ll get!

You'll pay through the nose (cheap treats sell dear at show,)
With the heart's movements glacial; heart shatters; all's lost!
Though no prison's involved (for you've broken no laws),
Those who don't learn to add, can't discover the cost.
