Tuesday night and it’s Baked Beans AGAIN! Does she ever stop talking. I used to fool myself that her snore was musical like a sweet sounding flute, Now it’s just a snore. Too loud, all too familiar. What would happen I wonder if I took that tin of Baked Beans on the table And battered her to death with it.
They found the ****** weapon in the cupboard on the top shelf, Next to a quivering can of rice pudding. It didn’t look overly angry or guilty, it looked (for what it’s worth) Like any other tin of beans. However it had blood and hair around the rim.
“BAKED BEANS ****” the front page of The Sun would say, Amnesty on all tinned goods called for, as the masses Started taking ‘tin(g)s” into their own hands. All over the country, partners dying at the hands of Heinz, Or possibly cans of spam or pear slices.
The Army may catch on, a major new part of SAS training, Close quarter baked bean tactics. The wail of sirens as Police arrive at an incident “Put down the weapon or we shall be forced to fire… tinned pineapple”. A can of alphabetti spaghetti could spell death.
“Let’s not have Baked Beans tonight my love… Chinese?”
