Ode to the Hush Puppy

I think that I shall never see

a treat as tasty as the Hush Puppy.

Its shape is compact and really quite spherical.

It’s flavor is sweet and truly most lyrical.

Its reputation has been tarnished and maligned for years,

but the taste of one can bring a grown man to tears.

For all you folks who like a plate of fried fish

you can’t help but grin when puppies are added to the dish.

Be it catfish or cod. Crappie or gill

You must admit hush Puppies just add to the thrill.

So whether you eat in a restaurant or pub

If they don’t give you hush Pups your fish is just grub.

  1. I love it! A feast for the eyes!
    When cornmeal batter hits the oil with a splatter, the world is my oyster, and nothing’s the matter.

    • Brilliant!!
      I had planned to dedicate my verse to you.
      But I was afraid you might be embarrassed and blue.
      No matter, we both know the reason for my ode.
      It’s a tribute to your blog and your Texas abode.

    • As you can see I wrote more than 4 years ago but I thought I should share it with another puppy lover.
