Just to say--
Inspiration hits with a flash, stories written on the go. A rumble of laughter and the tale is heard only in echoes. The wind blows me in a new direction. Whom shall I visit next?
This isn't just to say
That I have eaten the plums
From the icebox that you unwisely left unlocked
Like, you didn't even install a lock
What were you thinking?
Any butthead could come along and steal your plums!
You're damn lucky it was me.
They weren't bad, either, a bit too tart for me
Good luck breakfasting without them, loser!
The other thing though:
You're low on milk.
That's the rest of what I wanted to say
Get some milk, and Fruity Pebbles too.
No prequels yet. Why not write one?
No sequels yet. Why not write one?

There have been SO many parodies of this piece already, I felt like I had to put in my oar just for the hell of it. I have been thinking of a name I've wanted to use for a character. It wasn't Marcus, I think, but similar in some way that makes sense to me. But on the other hand, Marcus reminds me of Carlos in several ways.

Sure and why shouldn't you? You're a poet! Not only do I like this poem, and at least some of the variations, but I like your version too. I'm not sure about the hunger and thirst lines near the end but really they're the only ones. I get a good feeling of Marcus and surprisingly don't hate him for eating MY plums (or you know, your plums, or the narrator's or whoever). Fun stuff.
