Ode to Casper’s
Casper’s Chili, 601 W. Walnut St., Springfield, 417-866-9750
Oh Casper’s, how we adore you!
Your messy chili wipes away our winter blues.
Your colorful walls warm our hearts,
so we don’t even mind the kitschy art.
The crowded booths and sticky seats
are part of why people come to eat and eat.
Forget hostesses, glitz and fancy décor,
your overflowing milkshakes and chili dogs
even the score.
For every time we pull up to your metal dome,
a seat at your bar makes us feel right at home.
Piled into booths with other hungry friends,
we smile knowing these burgers aren’t good for
our rear ends.
But oh how we love each juicy bite and cheesy strand,
With mouths packed full we forget our
Others might shy from your shabby looks and
your limited hours,
but with charm like yours, our love will never sour.
