things go better with Coke

an old snappy ad once told

with the beamy smile shown

ten per cent brighter than a week ago

anyone could buy at a friendly price

with curved up lips looking so nice

sold out in a snap of a finger 

for a great day to make greater

gulped down with the coke

gotten lost in the thirsty throat


things go better with a smile

not meant to bill or buy

it´s a magic wand  

used when you want

to melt the loved one´s heart

to brighten a gloomy mind

to ignite hope inside

the one left high and dry

Sold! I’ll take her, I mean it 😏 … And the St Pauli girl, too! 😂

The advertisement works. Nice work, as usual, Lubbo.

Thank you Tony! In fact, a T-shirt with that slogan( worn by a teenager) has been stuck in my memory since I saw it back in 1967!  😂 And keeps coming up recently which inspired me to write that poem eventually.🤔

Yes, nicely done Lubbo.  snappy/beamy/thirsty/gloomy was an apt thread...lots of e in food and drink!

Thank you very much. Those apt adjectives emerged quite naturally which makes me extra happy.
