Attack Of The Killer Pimentos

I saw this movie
that was about tomatoes

It made me smile
because they rolled around
and killed people

I was eating olives
and I realized
the pimento in the middle
was the same colour
as the killer tomatoes

And I giggled to myself

But then he asked
'what are you laughing at? '
and I just smiled
and poured olive juice down his shirt.

    K. i fixed it. I agree. Last version was too sappy.

    i would add or somehow include this-

    the pimentos continued to snore.

    kissing softly is fine...could the last line, however, be a bit less greeting card, a bit more biting? memorable? unexpected?
