Can Factory


Can you cancan
  in the can factory

Can you factor in
  the tin can not
  the tin man
  no lubrication needed
  ever just a heart
Can you grow a heart
Can you know a heart

Can the soda
Can the beans
Can the fruit
Can the jams

Can we dance
  in tin can alley
Can we canter
  in the valley
Can we walk the red carpet
  at the festival in Cannes
Can we in all candor
Can we
Can do
Can we can it
  or do we just
Can it perhaps
  in the cantina.

So Tweetspeak Poetry has a prompt about bottles and cans, or bottled and canned. Or perhaps bottled or canned. I told myself, I can do this. Can’t I? Can’t we?

If Allen Toussaint says we can, then Yes, We Can Can.
