What’s the deal
What’s the deal with everyone
always asking what the deal is
with strange things?
As though all oddities could be
explained by underlying
Are we to believe Grape Nuts are so-
called, despite their lack of both,
because the numbers were right?
And you can’t tell me that
German Checkers became “Chinese”
and Ecuador’s hats “Panama”
to sell more games and headwear.
I’m simply not buying it.
