Thou art more crunchy -- though without the cheese: Rough winds do blow when I forget the dip, For nachos are so very hard to please: Sometimes too hot, so I must let them cool, And often is their gold complexion dimm'd, But only when I make them like a fool, By chance they burn like candles yet untrimm'd: But thy eternal crunchiness won't fade, Nor burn like all my failed attempts to bake, Nor shall you be like these -- so poorly made, Which in eternal snacking I forsake. So long as men can breathe and tongue can taste, Your nacho-likeness will not be erased. ***Use Template on the back of this sheet.
