Haiku Friday: Cereal

Maybe you never ate cereal. It's possible. But I bet that you did, and maybe do still.

Let's haiku about that this week. Here, I will go first:

I blame you, Quispy!
I wanted Earthquake Power
But you killed Quake.

That relates to kind of a long and convoluted story (which you can review here). IPLawGuy, I'm told, was always kind of a "Quisp" guy.

Now it is your turn! And it can really be about any cereal, or breakfast food, for that matter... just use the 5/7/5 syllable formula and have some fun!

Calvin's breakfast was
Chocolate Frosted Sugar Bombs
stayed juiced all morning

Fiber One, Oatmeal
(raw slow cook), chia and flax
seed, fine chopped walnuts.

On top of all that:
Greek yogurt, 2 percent milk,
and protein powder.
Evil genius:
Guy who invented Grape Nuts.
Yum- breakfast gravel!
Always found weevils
In grandma's old raisin bran.
Can I just have eggs?
Russian Jews, newly
arrived, put their heads down in
the cereal aisle.

“eh – bish – leesh – come,”* they
say through confused tears. “It is
too much, much too much.”

We take for granted
what U.S. stores have. It’s more
than they can take in.

*это слишком in Cyrilic
