Fast Food

We need to eat
What shall I do
Pick up a menu
Dial my order through
Can’t think of cooking
Right now, don’t you see
Why should I cook
When they’ll bring it to me
Experts in nutrition
Artisans with their food
Have no place in my life
I prefer mass produced
Real food has flavours
And takes too long to eat
I prefer it all easy
The microwave on reheat
Why pick fresh produce
And store it with care
Because I’d have to think
About what meal to prepare
Pre packed , fancy packets
Are the way to go
Or drive into a fast food
And eat on the go
Why bother with cooking
The chopping and smell
I don’t want nutrition
It’s our modern hell.
