I saw a full serving of nacho chips,
complete with a generous amount of cheese dip,
drop straight and fast into the dustbin
as hundreds of fans jumped with joy
during a game between the Pirates and the Indians.
A few more days and I’ll be back home –
where many children jump with joy
at finding a few nacho chips with a little cheese dip
rotting in the dustbin.
