Two Servings

How many servings is a can of Coke?
One?
No, according to their Corporate Nutritionist. It’s two.
As if someone drinks half a can, and puts the other half away.
“Or they share it with someone,” they said to me, opening a can of Coke, and offering it to me.
I took the can, filled my glass, and handed it back.
They filled their glass.
“See?” they said. “Two servings.”
“I suppose you’re right,” I said, and offered a toast.
I suppose people should read labels carefully.
Even if the poison I put in their glass wasn’t on the list.
