Hot Dogs On The Fourth Of July

The BIG BANGS on the fourth of July:
Picnics, fireworks, barbecues, and hot dog for everyone

Cool-dog lay in fresh whole-wheat bun covered with mustard
and ketchup, onions too I thinks, yet it taste better than most
Humble Ilana choses it adding condiments she likes best

Hot-diddly barked the dog! 'Leave the rest out, just cover me
with mayonnaise and sauerkraut, I'll wait to be taken next

Juicy-dog, packed with by products lay in bun
covered with the likes of pigeon droppings as topping.
Innocence-Kayla says, 'I pass…a hamburger, please! '

Long slim-dognaked as a jay bird, lay stretched out
in a plain toasted bun,
Demure-Kamille sits alone enjoying her bare hot dog

Happy Fourth of July!

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
