PEPSI ROUNDHOUSE KICKS COKE IN AN UNFORGETTABLE CAGE MATCH BATTLE

they asked me
coke or pepsi
and i said
neither
sir
i am
good
without either
for both are good
without me
and i ain’t no dummy
to be sitting here
being told
by a coke can
that we need to
incentivise jobs
here in bubbly sugarland
being told
by a pepsi can
that blue is the way of my
blood
that before my blood
hits the surface of reality
that it’s blue
that it’s experience
that turns my blood red
coke red
red red
but then i said
i’ll just have
water
because i
am in the market
of quenching my thirst
and the thirst
of those hungry for water
not
yours
not
what you’re selling
thank you
very much
