Explaining It All Away

contents of this poem may settle
here's hoping they won't unsettle 
you who are now reading the

ingredients list with your glasses on
and remembering when
there were toys in the cereal

and kids left unattended
would grab the new box picked up on Saturday
flinging the cereal out by

handfuls looking for the prize.
later they went on to
major in archeology.

noted for their findings on
Etruscan cereal bowls.
little clay spoons.
