Eating popcorn can be messy,

Just ask the guys at work….

They make me use a dustpan,

Stepping on kernels hurts.

The vacuum cleaners treat them

Like staples, tacks and things,

When they build up in the hose…

That baby really sings!

The crumbs they fall like raindrops

In a circle ’round my feet…

It isn’t hard to figure out

What I decided to eat.

At home I must be careful

Because my feet are often bare…

I cannot feel when I step on one

Nor know when my skin has a tear.

I’m getting better cleaning up after

Myself and my popcorn snack…

The whisk broom and a dust pan gather

What used to be my track.
