The Tortilla Chips That Put Me In A Grave

-

I was coughing up blood when I saw my heart blow up

__in the microwave

____just laughing off the feelings

______that I suddenly stopped feeling like I was feeling

________because when I ate the tortilla chip

__________thinking it was healthy

____________I noticed it tasted bitter

______________without thee amount of of salt

________________as a potato chip

__________________and began to feel sick

I learned my lesson

Now I am dead

Death from the world's

__most boring tortilla chip

Why can't they just have enough salt to enjoy

__so that I would not be being buried today?

As I enter my grave

All I can think about is

"What happened to taste?"
