Campbells Chicken Soup


I ain't quite ready yet!
To stand in the dark recess of the cupboard
As unrequested
Out of date
Discontinued
Campbells..... chicken soup

My heart still listens
My stomach
Still loops the loop
When you are around

Yet still
I just stand
Unenjoyed
Unemployed by loves relish
So as a pitiful dog
I'll lay in my basket
And just embellish

    Still love it. The third wheel, so to speak. There is a tinned beans campaign in oz at the moment with the slogan 'Break out the beans' for that neglected tin. Poor old soup needs a mew manager. (Report) Reply
