Peanut Butter Prank

His brother hated
The taste of peanut butter
He liked spiced mustard

He would play a trick
Spread the peanut butter thick
Hidden in middle

Mustard ringed the edge
His brother took the kind gift
He smiled and waited

He took a big bite
Spit to obtund the flavor
Hucked into the street
