Poetry Day: Don’t Kill Over Stolen Milk

Fullmetal Alchemist

(Exaggeratingly based off a true story.  One that will forever live in infamy and be included somewhere in the Phi Beta Files series.)

Stuck in class

Breakfast now long dead

I feel my stomach twist

Forcing me to stumble

As I traverse the snowy quads

I know I have to make it

Back to my simple room

Where salvation waits

Inside a holy carton

The last ration of my week

Until I make it to the store

I can almost taste it

The chocolate frothy drink

Giving me the strength

To live until the lunch bell

Imagine my despair

When the holy carton is no more

I find it drained

And crushed inside the trash

With the criminal still near

Licking his lips

As he reads a gamer mag

The faint smell of chocolate

Hovering on his breath

That I smell across the room

My rage tries to rise

To overcome my stomach

That saps me with every gurgle

A mild debate ensues

And the war begins

Continuing to this very day

    Great poem. So painful though. I had a roommate like that freshman year who kept eating my food. Arrrrrrggggghhhhh!


  3. If you do use that, you need to put a curse on the stolen milk. It’s only fair!

    Oh dear! No chocky milk drink. No wonder the war continues.
