lost things

under the bed is a kingdom of lost things
like socks and underwear, ruled by cruel
and vicious and mean coloured jellybeans
the king of the purple people in oil
and peanuts in the kingdom inbetween them
fighting the lime green king of lemons
and the diabolical plot queen of lemons
and lace using his purple powers
from secret peanut butter jars
in grocery stores on grocery shelves
so if you want back what you lost
buy lots of purple peanut butter
or you’ll never get any of it back
