Today, I had a craving I couldn’t conquer
Thought I’d go buy myself a Whopper
But I couldn’t cause there’s no Burger Kings near me
Then, I figured I’d get a baconator
Came across a wild alligator and thought
“This is the perfect currency”
I had time to think it over
As I went through the grueling process
Of getting a lizard into my Range Rover
So now I’m sitting at the stoplight
Mulling over my brilliant strategy,
Anticipating the trajectory,
I’m getting hungry so I have to make my move
Pulled my car into the drive-thru
Said politely “I want food”
The lady said that I should be a wee more precise
A burger, an iced tea with no ice
And no, I don’t want any fries…
I had to know this would be costly
I had to weigh the pros and cons
And just how badly I wanted a frosty
I approached the service window,
Wiped my brow and swallowed shallow
Gathered my nerve and threw the gator
I just hope this doesn’t make the paper…
Suddenly I’m overcome with utter grief
Oh no. I’m such a bozo.
I forgot to grab the burger and the tea
Oh well. There’s no turning back now.
I must press on with no question.
Do you think i learned my lesson.
