A poem about fast food restaurants.
All over the delightfully-stacked menu;
Crispy, delicate, golden fries
And hot, tasty onion rings, to boot -
So many spicy or grilled, juicy and tender
Chicken sandwiches, as well,
Not to mention great, meaty tacos, flavorful shakes
And icy smoothies.
A glorious and tempting combination of delicious tastes
And uproarious sin that is destined
To whet any starving man or woman's
However, one must be somewhat cognizant
Of the humongous levels of fat
And tremendous hoards of calories
That one might ingest from one of these talented diners
And eateries -
Countless forms of intolerable disease
And deathly risks,
Not to mention unwanted and overwhelming obesity,
Can grossly intensify due to these hearty,
Yet completely unconscionable meals...
