Ode to an Empty Jelly Jar

You were some good jelly
You laid down on my sandwiches and my toast
I liked to eat you with peanut butter when I was too lazy to cook which sometimes happens when you're living alone and are a graduate student living in Indiana
Back in California I'd probably get a burrito
Anyway, at first I thought you were overpriced 
A dollar fifty more than Smuckers or Kroger
And I thought why not try it? At least I'm not giving those assholes my money
Every time I spread you on wheat bread I could see actual strawberries
And you tasted delicious
O jelly jar, how empty you are
You were really a pretty good tasting Jelly
