Corn dog praise

 I just consumed 
a lovely, just purchased
 warm crunchy corn dog...  hmmmmm…

Which brings to mind
 numerous other corn dogs
I have purchased in past years…
 
Needless to say 
I acquired my taste for the 
munchy foodstuff years ago…

At the time I ate my first corn dog
 I lived in Griffin, GA, and heard 
tell of them from local connoisseurs…

 At that time where I taught 
one of the men worked with the Kiwanis folks 
and each and every year brought to work… corn dogs…

A passle of corn dogs, made at the yearly county fair
 by Kiwanis from their ‘secret’ recipe
 and every single one was consumed with  joy…
 
Why, there were folks who only went
 to the local county fair 
just to purchase a heap of corn  dogs…

 And I became one of those folks 
bribing my son in later years 
just to go by the fair & bring me a few  dogs…

 I mean these corn dogs were golden brown, 
crunchy, and the hot dog inside 
was wondrous meaty, well cooked…

 I am drooling just thinking of  those
 lovely corn dogs… slathered with  mustard…
 or ketchup if that be your taste… or plain…

 The one I just consumed with slow  deliberation
 was to be rated about an 8 as compared 
to the 10 score of those corn dogs of  yesteryear…

 So forgive my culinary 
low brow love
 of the golden brown corn  dog…
