Burger King


by Henry Burt Stevens

 "At Burger King, Midday Sunday, Ft Myers, Florida"

Moving slowly not
to spoil their raiment

moving calmly
still otherworldly,

they do not see any of us
white, brown, or black

sitting with our families
eating burgers and fries,

though they smile gently
to one another.

We know who we are
and why we are not seen.

If it happens while
we're all together

we'll see them taken up
leaving us behind

but for now the saved
have joined with us for lunch.

BK, the favorite haunt of drivers and others. Wonder how many there are? I'll take Mighty Taco over a BK any day.

Well I like the Whopper but I find the Hardee's Thick Burger really good. Nice write though.
