Ode (and apology) to the gas seller

Oh Gas Seller!
You are so great,
here I was just two days ago
snarkily saying "gas? maybe tomorrow, maybe in a month"
when you said yesterday that
gas had arrived just after I had left.

Oh Gas Seller!
Now I can eat hot foods and
junk those saltines that
have been the staple of my diet
for way too long.

Thank you. Thank you very much. I have to give credit to my year in Japan for this great haiku-like composition.

Be sure to stock up on gas before my arrival! I expect you to cook me some nice hot meals :)

Oy! I advise you to cancel your plane ticket right now because you ain't getting home-cooked meals from me. No sirey.
