The Little Epicure that Could…

When shopping for my tasty bits,
I do the supermarket blitz.
I hold the price gun and I scan.
I think I can!  I think I can!

My budget will not let me buy
some steaks or frozen apple pie
but I am still a gourmet man.
I think I can!  I think I can!

For what is soup but dinner in
a can?  A rank beginner in
a cooking class can heat a pan.
I think I can!  I think I can!

The chicken noodle is on sale.
I got a coupon in the mail.
O Campbell’s!  I’m your biggest fan!
I think I can!  I think I can!


Notes:  The Mag [Magpie Tales] posted the above picture as the prompt. The form is Kyrielle, because it's such a fun form!  I can haz soup.


  1. Love it! Thanks for the chuckle.

    (BTW . . I'm not proving I'm a robot when I fill in these wretched WV's I'm working FOR NOTHING for outfits like libraries whose OCR software doesn't work properly. Did you know that? PLEASE turn them off)

  2. Hey Doctor FTSE - I think I just corrected the situation. No more captcha, hopefully.

    And thanks for the nice comments.

  3. ha to heat a can of soup i think i can as well...smiles.

  4. Fantastic! A witty ditty, and the third verse enjambement is a delight. :)

  5. Well done you for adding some humour to life! And many thanks for removing the word verification nightmare.

  6. Souper!!!! Thanks for sharing, RJ.
