“empty fridge”

Written for:  The Twiglets #264 - empty fridge

While she was out,
my stomach shouted
for a snack.  Fridge
was empty except for
a six-pack.

What is that putrid odor?
Better empty out
that fridge.  All green,
and brown items first.

she searches for milk
fridge is completely empty
disappointed cat

             A man whose fridge was on the fritz
              requested service lickety-split.
                  Repairman looked in,
                  got hit in the chin
       with slabs of meat, and pickled pigs feet–it was the pits!

    What Misky said. Also, the six pack is not good for your six pack so ignore it.

    Awe… old Mother Hubbard’s cubboard not quite so bare… beer!
    I’ve heard of beer on cereal … not sure I’d eat it…
    All fun. The Fridge – a necessary appliance. I’ve heard though that the states have the biggest ones. In Europe folks have tiny fridges and shop every day (not sure how well that worked during the last year or so.) I had a relative visit someone in Europe and was chastised for going into the ‘fridge’ without asking first! But that was over 30 – 40 years ago…
