You remind me of a taco,
Crumbly, short fused.
Do the slightest thing and you’re yesterday’s news.
You remind me of a taco,
Ready to explode.
Always set in self-destruct mode.
5,4,3,2,1, then BOOM!
It’s gone, in 5 seconds flat.
Just like a rocket, off goes your cap.
5,4,3,2,1 BOOM! Just like that.
You would remind me of a taco,
If you hadn’t exploded.
You could’ve kept it together,
But instead you lost it.
You would remind me of a taco,
If you hadn’t exploded.
You could’ve kept it together,
But instead you lost it.
You would probably remind me of a taco,
If you hadn’t exploded.
You could’ve kept your cool,
But you…didn’t.
You remind me of a taco,
Sitting there silently, innocent as could be.
Then BOOM! Barbarically,
You’re history.

Cool! I actually stumbled on this when I was looking to see if I could search for my poem, Remind Me When I'm Dead. I had no idea how Taco came up, so I had to click on it! And I'm glad I did! Great work, and keep writing!
