You know demand for
Instant gratification –
Has gone too far when –
McDonald’s fast food is not
Fast enough for some’s liking

Notes to this poem…
There were some youths waiting for McDonald’s as I was and complaining about how long it was taking. They had not been there that long to have a fair complaint. I know that generation is about instant gratification, but that was getting ridiculous.
The poems titled Tanka, followed by a number, are tanka composed while I was not engaged in some activity during which I frequently composed poetry. That is why these are called the Inactive Tanka collection.
