I ordered a cheeseburger with the works

Add avocado with raw onion

The waitress took my order then moved to mom and did a twerk

Mom ordered cheeseburger plain and dry

The waitress asked if she wanted tater tots or fries

Mother answered fries

The waitress left our table with a jiggle and as she walked she wiggled

When our food arrived

"Ummm the food is good," mom said with a giggle…

Gobble, gobble, gobble mom ate her food up to the end

Now for chocolate cream pie she'll share it with a friend

The moral of this story is that if you eat up all your dinner

You will be the winner

And you'll finish with dessert with a wiggle and a giggle…

My mom eating her cheeseburger plain and dry at our favorite restaurant
