Sunday Service (redraft)

April 2, 2008

I said I’d not eat in McDonalds
with it’s choices of burger

or burger and fries.
it’s dark eyed and listless workers

it’s glossy bright awning
the same in Dubai.

I said I’d not eat in McDonalds
where they serve only minimum wage

where expectations are swollen with chip fat
and people collect coupons for more of the same.

I said I’d not eat in McDonalds
lit up like a dancing girl

where families are packed in like cattle
and cattle is grazed on land that is burnt

I said I’d not eat in McDonalds
Where they supersize cravings with salt

where a clown with a smile like a cleaver
is kinder then Jesus and greater than God

I said I’d not eat in McDonalds
but everywhere else was closed

and I couldn’t believe it was really that awful –
as bad as the burger,

bleak as the lino.
