Bacon sure is popular, but bacon's not a player.
Bacon's babe is burger, who has many a complex layer.
Burger likes to mix it up, and bacon sees nothing wrong.
'Cause bacon is next to burger's heart; their bond will always be strong.
Both are as American as that dish named apple pie.
Together they enhance other foods you'd normally deny.
They're the couple you cannot help but love, the rare pair that isn't gross.
You do want them all up in your face (to witness this union up close).
No person's hunger could end this affair; chewing's not even enough.
So go ahead and indulge in this love (in fact, they’re pretty into that stuff)!
