Open can

Popeye
will slurp
spinach,
send emails,
put his slippers on,
change the lightbulb,
complete a jigsaw or two,
flick on the History channel,
eat some peanuts, drink tea,
go for a walk, look at leaves,
worry about the thoughts
in his head, talk about it,
potter in the garden,
feed the creatures,
sit down
have a
nap.
