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.
