Celebrate The Burger - Poem by Marilyn Lott

We all enjoy a good ‘burger’
An American meal for sure
Cooked to perfection
If you’re hungry it’s the cure

So if you could take part
In a burger eating contest
Scarf those puppies down
Do you think you would protest?

This town set’s the burger
Way up high on a pedestal
Folks eat and eat those burgers
Long after they get full

Makes me sick to even imagine
Putting so many away
But sure would be fun to watch
This fun-filled burger day

And guess what else they do?
Why they work and work to create
A burger so enormous
It could never fit on a plate

It’s 750 pounds they say
I just cannot imagine, can you?
How in the world they carry it
Why, it would take an enormous crew

What an interesting day it would be
To watch this all take place
Why, they celebrate the burger
An occasion they truly embrace!
