The Traditional Nialler Food Song

Oh, what a lovely cheeseburger you are
sitting alone as I watch from afar
wanting a taste, wanting a bite
I cry myself to sleep for you every night

Oh, what a lovely french fry pack you are
sitting alone as I watch from afar
as I drive away from the drive-thru, I take you with me
together, forever, in my stomach you’ll be

Oh, what a lovely icecream cone you are
perfectly crafted, cone, sprinkles and all
when the cream melts, dribbles, or drips
only then will I let it pass through my lips

Oh, what a lovely food plate you were
Filled up with treats, delicacies, I’m sure
That’s all, though, I’m finished, gone’s all the galore...
Bring on the seconds, I’m ready for more!

(repeat again and again until everyone is annoyed)

This is awesome. This is comedic which I don't see in poetry enough! Thank you for this break and making me smile and laugh!
