For a Can Of Tuna

I can’t help thinking
how wild the tuna
in there, in chunks,
probably was.

It probably fought
like a Viking
to its death
in rough, stormy seas
against far away
fishermen
with crazed
eyes like Ahab.

And now
it’s just generic
tuna.

Valhalla is a
really boring can,
and the Viking’s eulogy

is “Great Value.”
