Twinkie Lovers Rejoice

Twinkie Lovers Rejoice

By Elton Camp

When Twinkies were made no more
From the public came an outraged roar

“But Twinkies are my favorite treat.
I absolutely must have them to eat.”

The union had Hostess by the throat
Production costs thereby did bloat

Twinkie-making then shut down
That made its lovers scowl and frown

Imposters soon began to be sold
“They’re not as good,” the public told

“We must have our junk-food fix.
Don’t keep trying a scheming trick.”

They are said to taste like they did before 
But cocoa, not milk chocolate anymore

So Twinkies are making a sweet comeback
Again, sugar and fat they sure won’t lack

To eat Twinkies that have been deep-fried
You haven’t lived until you’ve tried!
