Minifigure Monday – Popcorn

(An original LEGO® inspired poem from True North Bricks)

Kernels come from a corn crop,
But how do you make them pop?
Take a moment and you’ll see,
It’s about anatomy.
In the kernel is the germ,
It’s fed by the endosperm.
The germ is what makes a plant,
But, in this case, it just can’t.
Endosperm is a wet carb,
And pericarp is its garb.
Heat makes wet evaporate,
And enter the gaseous state.
Pressure builds up pretty soon,
Just like air in a balloon.
The pericarp will be torn,
And the starch is now popcorn.

This poem was inspired by the Popcorn Cart polybag.
