The Art of Tetman Callis Poems the candy-bar contest

the candy-bar contest

the candy-bar wrapper says
i’m having a contest
you could win a truckload of money
buy me and open me up and see

so i do

the candy-bar wrapper says
sorry, you are not a winner
sorry, try again
sorry, this will rot your insides out
sorry, your tire just went flat
sorry, your last four checks bounced
sorry, your cat ran away
sorry, your dog was last seen chasing your cat
sorry, your wife was last seen chasing some dog

sorry, the candy-bar wrapper says
thanks for playing
