Hot for Hot Dogs!

Hot for Hot Dogs!

Clark Steven Lupton

February 2, 2005

Hot dogs are good

They are delicious

Some say they’re unhealthy

But I think they’re nutritious

They have important food groups

Like meat, ketchup and bread

They will satisfy your hunger

Up until you’re dead

You can by them in restaurants

And get them on the street

You can buy them with soft drinks

What can be more complete?

Some say their ingredients are dirty

But nothing can be cleaner

You may prefer rice with your meal

But I prefer a wiener

You can also have them with relish

And/or onions, cheese and mustard

Death row convicts request them for their last meal

And it was the same for General Custard

You can eat hot dogs for energy

You can eat them if you’re young or old

You can eat them when you’re healthy

Or when you have a cold

They are easy to cook

You can boil them or have them fried

You can eat them for every meal

Believe me I have tried

If I had a choice

I’d eat a hot dog every day

If it fell on the floor

Well, I’d eat it anyway

I’d bring hot dogs to parties

I’ll serve them at my wedding

That will make me happy

No matter what gifts we’ll be getting

Hot dogs are great food

You might think me insane

But that’s why God made cows, pigs and chickens

And why man harvests grain

Jesus made many parables

The parable of the mustard seed was one

To illustrate the importance of mustard

And that it should be put in a hot dog bun

So eat hot dogs all the time

Eat them until you’re full

You will get your share of protein

And ketchup is a vegetable

And no one sells expensive hot dogs

This fact makes me think deep

Perhaps I love to eat hot dogs

Because they’re very cheap!

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Like my Bananas over Bananas poem, I thought this title Hot for Hot Dogs would make a good enough sequal, and I had to give it some thought about what I'd say, it didn't come as natural. I do like an occassional hot dog but now that I'm watching what I eat I don't eat them as much

Bananas over Bananas

   Bananas over Bananas

   Clark Steven Lupton


  Bananas are good

  Bananas are fine

  Bananas are the main ingredient

  That makes up white wine

  Kids like their color

  Monkeys like their shape

  Old people like the fiber

  That helps the bowels escape

  Eat the banana fruit

  Eat the banana bread

  Eat bananas everyday

  That's what Jesus said

  Yes He said they're good for you

  He said they are blessed

  You can even exercise after eating bananas

  Without having to digest

  I eat bananas throughout the day

  I dream of them in my sleep

  I always buy bananas

  Because they're really cheap

  Bananas are healthy

  They are a convenient snack

  They have many vitamins

  That expensive chocolates lack

  Bananas are for endurance exercise

  Because they're nature made

  They're loaded with Potassium

  And cheaper than Gatorade

  I believe in bananas

  And I don't mean to be rude

  When I say that bananas

  Are the god**** perfect food

  And if you may not like them

  And you are not really fit

  You're guaranteed to enjoy one

  In a gigantic Banana Split!

Author's Notes/Comments: 

This poem is 95% true! I first thought of the title and then the rhymes followed. But alas, things have changed for me since then and I was tested for slightly high blood sugar and the doctor told me to cut down to 3 bananas a day. Not having all the bananas I like is making me go bananas! :o)

frozen solid

I wouldn’t know what to do, once I had it

Why can’t I be myself? I’m frozen solid when it comes to you

I turn to stone and don’t know what to do

But the longing won’t leave and that’s the truth

Please give me the confidence to face this straight in the eye

I’m standing in the open, but I’m sure not to survive

Everything I’ve ever wanted, are all the things I’ll never have

And if I ever were to have them, I wouldn’t know what to do with them

Just take me apart, and spread the disease

Because I’m already sick of trying, I’ll never get what I need

Nothing but a rock, that should sink beneath these waves

I might appear to be living, but I’m full of death just like the grave

I just can’t find the words to let out anything of significance

I’m lost when it comes to trying to find you

I just can’t be myself, forever trapped beneath this shell

You can’t ever get inside, I’ve got more than enough reasons to hide

What will it take to penetrate this stone?

To finally open my eyes, to pretend I’m not alone

What it will take it something that doesn’t exist

I’ve stopped trying, it won’t bother to persist

I hide behind this mask, because I can’t stand who lies behind it

I hide behind this dirt, because I can’t stand the world above it

I hide myself from you, because I can’t handle what might come from it

I’m so frozen

I'm addicted to Crunchy M&Ms


I'm addicted to crunchy M&Ms

I can never stop eating them

I really don't know why

cause I really do try

but I just can't seem to stop

I just keep eating them a lot

oh well what can I really say

maybe I'll stop eating them one day

but it definitely won't be today

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I love crunchy M&Ms.

a bitter fruit

mind is like the bulb, fluorescent

preening, surging, iridescent

scalding, soothing, life's gone sour

a bitter taste to waste the hour

all of these things, about which you worry today

won't really amount ten years away.

because life's all but a bitter fruit

only ripened in the youth

when all's come down, rotting fruit decays

should i save the seeds or throw them away?

flowers above the grave, empty house by the lake

just hope they won't make the same mistake

الأعلان العالمي لحقوق الأنسان

الإعــلان العـالمي لحقـوق الإنسان

  اعتُمد بموجب قرار الجمعية العامة 217 ألف (د-3) المؤرخ في 10 كانون الأول/ديسمبر 1948

في 10 كانون الأول/ديسمبر 1948، اعتمدت الجمعية العامة للأمم المتحدة الإعلان العالمي لحقوق الإنسان وأصدرته، ويرد النص الكامل للإعلان في الصفحات التالية. وبعد هذا الحدث التاريخي، طلبت الجمعية العامة من البلدان الأعضاء كافة أن تدعو لنص الإعلان و"أن تعمل على نشره وتوزيعه وقراءته وشرحه، ولاسيما في المدارس والمعاهد التعليمية الأخرى، دون أي تمييز بسبب المركز السياسي للبلدان أو الأقاليم".


لما كان الاعتراف بالكرامة المتأصلة في جميع أعضاء الأسرة البشرية وبحقوقهم المتساوية الثابتة هو أساس الحرية والعدل والسلام في العالم.

ولما كان تناسي حقوق الإنسان وازدراؤها قد أفضيا إلى أعمال همجية آذت الضمير الإنساني، وكان غاية ما يرنو إليه عامة البشر انبثاق عالم يتمتع فيه الفرد بحرية القول والعقيدة ويتحرر من الفزع والفاقة.

ولما كان من الضروري أن يتولى القانون حماية حقوق الإنسان لكيلا يضطر المرء آخر الأمر إلى التمرد على الاستبداد والظلم.

ولما كانت شعوب الأمم المتحدة قد أكدت في الميثاق من جديد إيمانها بحقوق الإنسان الأساسية وبكرامة الفرد وقدره وبما للرجال والنساء من حقوق متساوية وحزمت أمرها على أن تدفع بالرقي الاجتماعي قدماً وأن ترفع مستوى الحياة في جو من الحرية أفسح.

ولما كانت الدول الأعضاء قد تعهدت بالتعاون مع الأمم المتحدة على ضمان اطراد مراعاة حقوق الإنسان والحريات الأساسية واحترامها.

ولما كان للإدراك العام لهذه الحقوق والحريات الأهمية الكبرى للوفاء التام بهذا التعهد.

فإن الجمعية العامة تنادي بهذا الإعلان العالمي لحقوق الإنسان على أنه المستوى المشترك الذي ينبغي أن تستهدفه كافة الشعوب والأمم حتى يسعى كل فرد وهيئة في المجتمع، واضعين على الدوام هذا الإعلان نصب أعينهم، إلى توطيد احترام هذه الحقوق والحريات عن طريق التعليم والتربية واتخاذ إجراءات مطردة، قومية وعالمية، لضمان الاعتراف بها ومراعاتها بصورة عالمية فعالة بين الدول الأعضاء ذاتها وشعوب البقاع الخاضعة لسلطانها.
