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!
