Tom opened you
and giggled with glee.
I asked why he was laughing
"Just wait, and you'll see."
He handed you over
and I opened the spout.
Then I giggled too
"That's what the fuss was about!"
There, on your top, in the silliest place
Carved into red plastic, a smiley face.
Thank you, smiley syrup, you made my day.
