Fast Food Restaurant

Victoria BC, Canada

To start off, I used to work at a an EXTREMELY well known fast food restaurant. We had many regular customers, many of them were people who were poor and living on the street. Most of them were very pleasant. There was one man who always came in to get his “Carbonated Water” which we gladly gave him. Water is free :) We got to know one another over the course of time I worked there, and he got to see me deal with many of the rude customers. One day he came up to me and asked for some paper. Not having any I pulled some out of the receipt machine and gave it to him. At the end of the day he came up to me and  read out to me what seemed to be a sonnet in my name, along with a lavish bow at the end. It’s been 7 years later and I still have that receipt paper with said sonnet on it.

(My name) The (Company Name) Burger Queen

An angelic miss, with the heart of gold, sharing the secrets of (Company name) untold.

She serves burgers and fries to all the customers, girls and guys.

And tells no lies. Dodging flies, spies, and loud customer’s cries.

She has the beauty of a movie star, but she doesn’t hang out in a dumpy car.

A loving mother, worker, like no other.  She is a friend of everyone and the people who push carts.

But not to anyone who breaks peoples hearts.

She has the heart and ambition to feed a nation, and she always likes to cause a sensation.

But if this (My Name) ever leaves the burger stand, everyone’s cries will be heard through the land.

Good job always.

The Carbon Water Poet.
