“H-E-B”

green sauce
tortillas
floor cleaner
and TP
what do you need?
you’ll find it right here
in the aisles
of your HEB
just don’t leave Texas
don’t go too far off
or else you’ll be stuck
with the regular stuff
Non-Texans don’t know
the glories we enjoy
when we walk through the doors
when we linger, explore
discovering new and crazy things
every day
someone from Minnesota
or from New York
doesn’t understand
hatch chile week
or is it month
or maybe year?
Texans unite in our love
for affordable eats
our pride and bragging winks
our HEB
