    Think of the things I could eat
    If Mr. Achatz I could meet:

    Frozen avocado puffs over teriyaki broth,
    Candied cilantro lollipops and fricasseed sloth,

    Smoked tofu whipped with air,
    With a side of fried pear!

    I would be glorious, weird, orgasmic and more,
    But alas I cannot go, because I am poor.

    What's this you say, a ticket is free?
    And all you must see is a poem made by me?

    I think I can do it, it doesn't seem so hard.
    The people I know tell me I'm quite a card.

    Ok let's think….a poem about food. Well, being so hungry has put me in the mood.

    But it's hard to write this poem!
    I mean what rhymes with foam?

    Fine, I give up, oh woe is me.
    I'll never eat frozen cheese topped with braised lychee.

    I can't write this poem, I guess I'll never have fun.
    Wait…what..huh? I guess it's already done.
