What would make a plate of nachos even better? Well, if you’re a Texan, wouldn’t it be great if the chips, the cheese – even the plate on which it’s all stacked – were shaped like the place you live?
Things Shaped Like Texas
Here are things I want:
A block of cheese
A steak, a thick juicy steak
But I am a Texan,
And so I also want, always, to give props to
The Lone Star State
So please, don’t give me some boring triangular chips
Or the unseemly quadrilateral of queso
No, shape my gouda like Texas
Crunch my chips along the Rio Grande
And somehow, I don’t know, I trust you ranchers
Make my steak a true Texas Steak.
It must be so boring to have
Dinner in Vermont.
