Nehi orange, Mr. Pibbs,
Dr. Brown’s, Barq’s root beer fizz,
Coke, and Pepsi (in diet, too!),
Fanta, Fresca, Mountain Dew.
Dr. Pepper is the oldest,
Jolt Cola is the boldest.
Crush, RC, and Sarsaparilla,
Seven-Up, Sprite, and cream/vanilla.
I could on with this silly list
but you’re smart enough to get the drift.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York, though I now embrace the Pacific Northwest as home, residing with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. 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.
