Boiled Peanuts

In road-way stands throughout the South
Are fruits and veggies to tempt the mouth.
But one specialty, besides melons and cane,
Is nuts; called Boil'd Peanuts by name.
What is this regional epicurean delight
That causes some to go looking, even at night?

Often sold in a small, brown paper sack
For only a quarter; five to a green-back.
They're to be eaten as soon as they're got

Best of all, when still piping hot.
