The plum meme is very 2017.
HEY i just met you
and this is CRAzy
but the plums in the icebox
i ate them maybe

@Choplogik, tweeting a mashup between “This Is Just to Say,” William Carlos Williams’ well-known poem about eating plums from an icebox, and Carly Rae Jepsen’s 2012 song “Call Me Maybe.” The poem is often parodied online, but recently, Twitter users have been rewriting the short verses into popular songs. @CrillFactor reworked the poem into the song “All Star,” by Smash Mouth: “hey now/you’re an icebox/get your plums on/so/sweet.”
William Carlos Williams: “hey what happened to that poem i wrote way back about the plums and icebox?”

now I’m falling asleep
and she’s eaten my plums
now he’s opened the icebox
and she’s taking a plum
now I’m looking for plums
And my stomach feels sick
now it’s all my head
So sweet and so cold now
