Fast Food

Do you like fast food? Have you heard about the indestructible McDonald's cheeseburger? You know, the ones that don't rot and just turn hard as a brick? Well, that's what this humorous poem is all about.

Cheeseburgers

Have you heard about the man that found

a twenty year old cheeseburger in his pocket?

They say McDonald's cheeseburgers will preserve for decades

The pictures you see are so disgusting, right?

A rock solid bun and an old black burger await your taste buds

I know that sounds tempting.

I once saw a cat carrying a cheeseburger in his mouth

When I went to pull it out of his mouth

My fingertips were instantly welcomed

With the rock solid form of an old cheeseburger,

Half bitten into.

I'd like to think that these things

Would make great Frisbees, or doorstops, or museum collectibles

I'd like to think that something like this on the news

Would change the way I feel when I pass that place,

But I don't know,

There is something about the smell of a Big Mac

About the way the special sauce tastes

When it hits your tongue

About the way something stuffed with chemicals and bi-products

Can brighten your spirits

There is something about the way

Society runs on this soul food

Something about the way a nice french fry tastes

As you are passing a gas station

It's sort of a romantic affair

So, as I sit here contemplating this twenty year old cheeseburger

I'm spoiling myself with a big, juicy, mouthful of Big Mac.

I love the humour in this poem, and even though I'm not a fan of the burger I can't resist french fries. Definitely a romantic affair.
