just the facts, please...

no purchase necessary
void where prohibited by law
just add water
plus shipping and handling
must be 21 or older
limited to two per customer
4 easy payments
and call within the next ten minutes…

i walk downstairs,
open up the refrigerator,
grab a beer
and slowly drink it down.

even empty,
the can
is cool in my hand
and i sit down
in front of the tv
and fall asleep
heavy machinery.
