The Rockin L & H


Nothing tastes nearly as good
As it does on the outside grill
Camping out in my childhood
I have sweet memories still

Beans slow cooked and smoky
Bacon and bar-b-q sauce within
Biscuits light and fluffy as well
Sharing food with friends and kin

Corn so sweet and delicious
Yet crunchy against your teeth
The smell of the smoke in the air
Of wonderful smoky pork or beef

There’s a place that you’ll truly enjoy
Where you’ll never want to eat in haste
Because the food is so delicious
It is called the Rockin L & H!

Poem of the Day

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
