A Shocking Sight at Burger King

A Shocking Sight at Burger King

By Elton Camp

What I saw at Burger King the other day
It is sort of hard to find the words to say

It wasn’t a sandwich all filled with fat
Or too much salt--nothing at all like that

Nor was it a shake entirely devoid of milk
No, no it was not a single thing of that ilk

I didn’t see a roach scurrying on the floor
So that I didn’t want to eat there anymore

Nor was the health rating some dismal score
The place was nice and clean just as before

The customer getting food astonished me
One with a clown suit & hair red as can be

“Ronald McDonald, is it you,” I said
He gave a big grin and nodded his head

    On Scribd.com I posted a picture of Ronald standing at the Burger King Counter. It was probably fake, but it was fun. Elton

    Thanks. Another place I posted this, a person commenting had got the idea that he was spying on the competition. I meant to suggest that he prefers the food over that at McDonald's. The write may need a bit of work. Elton
