A Poem to Baken Beans

Midday arrives, it’s already been a long day
Stomach grumbling out quite a deafening display
And so I delve into my depleted kitchen
To rustle up some lunch just like a magician

Haven’t bought eggs or pasta for weeks
Can’t make soup – got no veggies or leeks
Alas the refrigerator lies fairly vacant
Except for an odour proving quite the repellent.

But when the fridge is empty and I don’t want to shop
Opening the pantry reveals you’re readily in stock
You spread out on toast with artistic scenes
So thank you, can of delicious baked beans
