Expiration Date


We’re not like cans of Campbell’s soup
With overdue expiration dates on a plastic loop
Or bottles of dressing imprinted and stamped
Use by January 25th or you might feel cramps
Our time will come when we least expect it
Or maybe body events will announce our exit
However it happens // whatever comes up
Our label that’s stamped on our plastic cup
Should read, “Could expire at any time!”
