Silly Jingles That Stick

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 - Prompt #409
Not Just Another Commercial Jingle

"We’ve all seen and heard the catsup (ketchup) ad about the slow dispensing of that product. Anticipation. All good things come to those who wait. What are you waiting for? Write an anticipation poem. Record your wishful thoughts in whichever poetic form suits you. If you feel brave, write a “disappointment poem.” Finally, if there is another jingle that stirs an inspiration, let us know. I’ll be waiting for it in rapt anticipation!"

Got milk?
No?  Then how
can I eat 
my cereal,
and hear that
snap, crackle,
and pop?

I run on coffee
and muster up muscle.
America runs on Dunkin–
spunk not in the equation.
If sugar don't kill ya,
Boston Cream will do ya.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
