Highway, byway,
every sidewalk paved
with scraps of the American dream.
Hungry?
Feed the need.
We got what you’re looking for.
Whatever your bag,
you can fill it here.
Micky Ds?
Wendys?
Taco Bell or KFC.

Oh the dreams we dreamed.
Who knew they would all come true.
40 acres and a mule.
A chicken in every pot.
And now, a Big Mac in every sack?

Living the supersized fantasy,
everything made to order;
bagged and boxed and plastic wrapped.

And so we stand,
one nation, oversized,
bubble wrapped and sanitized.

Ahhhh, make mine to go
