Mac n Cheese

D’Kari M. 

7th Grade


Mac and cheese

not the best to some people

but it’s good to me. The

cheesy strings, the crispy top

and the melt when you dip your spoon

and get your scoop. The

crispy, orangish color, the sizzle when 

it comes out the oven.  When you make

it, you can’t wait to eat it. The cheese

poured in the bowl, the 

milk poured through the mac, cracking 

the eggs into the bowl. When it’s set on

the table, everybody is pumped and

ready to eat it. When your nana puts your

scoop on your plate, you just get

filled with joy and warmth.

I’m eating on this food


 it got me in the mood

I need a big taco 

that looks like John’s shoes


you know that I be rapping

I eat tacos everyday 

I’m just snacking


I need some cheese on it

I warm up my taco

All I did was put Shaun’s jeans on it


I’m on the beat

I’m finna scream on it

I dropped some lettuce on the clipboard

And Ms. T got mad and put a check on it

Yea I’m done with the dissin’ 


that’s what my mom’s cooking in the kitchen 

I put some seafood on my taco 

and I ain’t even going fishin’

Dumplings like 76 flavors wrapped in a blanket

when fresh steamed

make me wanna scream

sweet red bean paste

what a wonderful taste

chicken soup

make me wanna jump a


even if you take 

your time

them dumplings

will be mine!
