McDonald's

McDonald's : Land of the Styrofoam Food.
Here there are no hamburgers or milkshakes,
Only burgers and shakes;
For ham and milk are organic foods,
And the most organic things here are the fossil fuels
Which go into the making of their plastic straws.
Those who travel often in the Midwest
May chance upon one of their huge factories,
Billowing clouds of smoke
As shale, limestone, and other minerals are converted into nearly digestable forms,
Then shipped across the country in sealed containers
So as not to poison the environment.
Here's a helpful hint for if your Super-Sized meal
Contains too much grease to consume at one sitting:
McDonald's goods need not be refrigerated,
For bacteria won't grow on them;
Only humans are foolish enough to eat this "food".
