Hot Dogs On The Fourth Of July - Poem by Almedia Knight Oliver

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!
