The Day They Demolished McDonald’s

No more Mickey D’s.

No more burgers with tapeworms and fleas!

 

Ding-dong, the Mick is Dead.

No more Ronald and no more bread.

 

But I guess we could find it elsewhere.

I guess we could search it out

Beneath the lineup of

Dunkin’ Donuts trucks.

 

You ain’t got bread?

You gotcha bread,

 

Unless of course, you’re

Jean Valjean.

 

But that’s another story, another musical,

And more Anne Hathaway.

You want something fast.

You want something quick, microwavable,

Instantaneous.

 

But with no more McDonald’s,

Your dreams are irrelevant,

And your thoughts,

Given your lack of sleep,

Seem too miscellaneous for you to

Concentrate and

Do your work,

File your taxes and

Willy Loman the car clean.

 

How ‘bout burrito?

Got plenty in the

D.C. food trucks.

Japanese, Chinese,

Mexican, American–

We got you covered.

 

On a day, no this day, no the day they

Demolished McDonald’s,

All you could think was, “Oh God.

Let me pray that the house doesn’t turn to

Rubble.”

 

Bubble, bubble, toil and trouble,

Fire burn and where’s my coffee?

On the go, snap to it!

 

So you sink into a depression, because nothing is

On the go.

Don’t you remember?

 

There is no fast food without McDonald’s.

Your mind isn’t awake.

Your heart’s about to break.

But then you get out of bed one morning–

It’s a wonder.

And then you realize:

 

There’s always Burger King.
