Among a hundred items in the appliance store
The only one purchased
Was the microwave.

A microwave and a plate
Aren't much.
A microwave, a plate, and a Hot Pocket
Well, that's a meal.

The lights of the microwave createth heat
And Whenith thy Hot Pocket is completeth
Thou pressed stop on thy microwave.

Hot Pocket in only two minutes
Especially with a microwave.

When the Hot Pocket was done,
The microwave rested on the kitchen counter.

I don't know which to prefer,
The sound of a micrwave,
Or silence when the job is done.

The Hot Pocket and hte plate,
It must be lunchtime.
