Ode 2 Mountain Dew

Mountain Dew is the best pop I know
nothin’ else for me, none,
no, a day without it, I can’t go on
other pop can’t compare to this one.

It helps me to sleep,
It helps me to wake,
though I can’t
drink it with cake.

Its my life force
it flows through my veins
without it I’m nothing
I go insane.

From the green bottle or can
to the liquid it holds
from the bubbles it makes
to the sweet sizzling sounds.

I savor every bit
don’t waste a drop
so I keep drinking
and can’t stop.

Pop vs. Soda

a contest/election of sorts going on at Kum & Go stations here in the U.S.A., in some states (Montana, North Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Wyoming, South Dakota, Iowa, Colorado, Nebraska, Missouri, Oklahoma, & Arkansas)


I usually call it pop, but soda is alright too, I suppose
I was on a trans-Atlantic flight once, & asked what I would like to drink, & when I responded “pop” the server/steward said, “I’m sorry, but I don’t know what that is” *shrugs*
