"Doritos" - a poem by Eli

Eli, my 7th grader, had an assignment in his Writing and Grammar course today. He was to write a poem from prose. He kind of missed the mark on this one, but it was such a funny poem, I wanted to share it. I hope it brings a smile to your face today.

My favorite chip I'll speak of today
They're so delicious in a cheesy way.
They are the chips for the athletic pros,
Oh how I love you, Doritos!
My favorite flavor is nacho cheese,
Gimme, gimme, gimmie, pretty please!
And now only at Taco Bell,
you can get them like a taco, that's very swell!
You can get them at the store in three different sizes.
When you throw them in your mouth, it's like flavor prizes.
There's one little problem, and that is when
there's no more left and you scream then,
"Sme hent rocaustran mephan trouk"
Oh please don't curse!
There's more in your mama's purse!
See this is a time to keep your mouth closed
because I will say "All Hail Doritos!"
by Eli Russell
