Order Up

Hamburger, beef cheese burger with tomato


Aroma of sweat


Cheap salad dressing


Another day

Another desperate employee


Don’t fire me

Fire him

And I say

Less and less people

Pass through those golden arches

I have to cut back


They cry

They sob

They walk out

And I

I cry

Why does a manager

Have such a hard job

At least I am not the one

Who poisons the customers

Makes them fatter

And makes them come back for more


I just take their money.

[poem by up and coming poet whom I admire who asked to remain anonymous]
