~Mmm...Mmm...Bad ~

 

A POET

sent his collection of POEMS
to a PUBLISHER.

The PUBLISHER
read one POEM
then tossed them ALL
into the TRASH.

 

The POET
expected to WAIT six months
for a REPLY from the PUBLISHER,
and after FIVE months,
while scrounging around a local DUMP
looking for ALUMINUM cans
he found his POEMS
in the rubbish with

CAMPBELL'S CHICKENNOODLESOUP
splattered all over them.
