Race To The moon

It’s a race to the moon.
Our team against theirs.
First team to the moon wins.
They have experience.
But we have the numbers.
The contest judge yells GO!
I open the first can of beans.
And shovel them into my mouth.
The other team duct-tapes one ladder to another.
“More ladders!” yells the other team. “More duct tape!”
I eat another two cans of beans before they get another ladder.
“It’s so close!” yells the man at the top of their ladder. “More!”
That’s when the beans kicked in.
No, I didn’t reach the moon.
But they tasted good.
