Poems from the Poet Laureate of McDonalds
They told me to write a poem about a Big Mac
All I could come up with was this...
A BIG MAC is American…
They loved it
At least you're not as creepy as the Burger King
You may be ugly but you ain't Burger King ugly
as you can still move your face
Remember that, you clown!
Imagine a world without Mcdonald's
That's like a world without religion
Impossible to imagine
Everyone needs to wave their miniature
American Flags at McDonald's more often
Mcdonald's is America
When people all over the world talk about America,
they always mention McDonald's because
what is more American than McDonalds
In order to honor this great American institution,
we need to wave more miniature
American flags within them
So the next time, you get a Big Mac
Don't forget your flag
Wave it around in order to
honor the All-American McDonald's
Fuck Burger King
Burger King doesn't have Big Macs
So don't go there
Big Macs are the most beautiful thing on the planet
So why go to a hell where there are no Big Macs?
In these uncertain political times
Go Eat at McDonald's
Delicious Food can really help a soul out
in uncertain times
McDonald's is not an enemy
It's a friend
Do enemies serves delicious food?
Think about it and you will see how right it is
