Feed the King

Corrupted
Clean sharp lines
the glowing display
colourful temptation
promising instant satisfaction.

Served in a bun
chicken or beef
single serving condiments
presented on a plastic tray.

Minimum wages worked
for maximum efficiency,
accents from the East
serve native nasal whines.

Counting the cents
the pension stretched
a meal with tea
temprary and cheap remedy.

Mulitnational menu
packaging pollution
filling the population
profits for the King.
