Ode to Tacos Del Julio Julio

Oh, tacos del Julio, you are the object of my nine lives!

You are always hot and ready!

You always taste so good because I made you!

You are easy to cook.

Compared to you, tacos mios, pizza has too much cheese

And fries taste like salt!

I want everything made out of tacos!

I want it to rain tacos mios!

Oh, tacos, how I love you!

by Julio, 4th grade
