Why thank you Sparky, Shelly not Byron would resonate to this work. But really you must do a Byronic gastromic.

Fatty Khan

In Xanadu did Fatty Khan
a stately burger-dome decree:
Where Heinz, the sacred ketchup ran
o'er bread buns measureless to man
down to a cup of tea.

Wrap a donut round him thrice,
and close your mouth with holy dread,
for he on honey-dew melon fed
and drunk the shakes of Paradise.

Ahem  ::) This is NOT the crappy poetry thread thank you very much. This is Mark's deadly serious poem about overpriced restaurants thread!

If I should belch, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of an Indian restaurant
that is forever England.

How could anyone call the following "crappy"

The Make-bile of Burger Bee

I WILL arise and go now, and go to the Burger Bee   
And a super-size Triple order , of beef and pink slime made;   
a giant slurpy will I have there, and fries in coagulating grease,
      And dine alone in the Bee-loud glade.   
   
And I shall have soft-serve there, for soft-serve comes dropping slow,         
Dropping from the auto-dispensers to cups of styrofoam   
There the neon's all a glimmer, the patrons a strange, green glow,   
      From the buckets of buffalo wings.   
   
I will arise and go now, for always night and day   
I hear sizzling grease with low sounds promise more.   
While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements gray,   
      I hear it in the deep intestine's core.

Love all this pastiche -- a sort of poetic quiche/kitsch [not sure how it's pronounced] ;D ;D ;D

Sonnet and Tomato on Rye

Shall I compare thee to a piece of cheese?
Thou art more crumbly and you smell like feet.
I'm sure that's rind I see upon your knees
and veins of mouldy blue lead to your feet.

Your frizzy hairdo seems as dull as Brie
and breath like Gorgonzola you emit,
while from your ears drip drops of yellow ghee
and cascade o'er your Mozzarella tits.

But thy eternal Cheddar shall not grate,
nor serve with Branston Pickle on some bread.
Welsh rarebit seems a nasty sort of fate
perhaps we ought to smoke thy curds instead.

So long as men can eat, or eyes can see,
so long lives cheese, and cheese gives life to thee.

Sonnet 116

Let me not to the mucilage of gluey grinds
Omit condiments. Grub is not grub
Which is so altered it can rise
Or bend by its own will with the power to remove:
O no! We're supposed to eat this, Mark!
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the start to every wrenching barf,
Whose chemical contents are unknown,
Let not slime's drool, through greenish lips and cheeks
Within this blended sickly compote come:
Unrefridgerated for hours and weeks,
Botchulism even to the edge of doom.
   If this be error and upon me proved,
   I never cooked: no man will ever love.

Will Shake-n-bake
