This is just to say -
I have eaten
the plums
that were in
the icebox

and which
you were probably
for breakfast

Forgive me
they were delicious
so sweet
and so cold
William Carlos Williams

You know, if someone actually did something like that to you (eat your plums), writing a poem explaining so would be a reasonable way to get themselves out of trouble...

I know. All sins forgiven for a poem like that.
