contradictory crown (NaPoWriMo 2020, day 27)

Today’s challenge: write a poem-form review of something that ordinarily does not get reviewed.

contradictory crown

burger king to their discredit offers to children

a piece of cut card stock purported to be a crown

and it looks like factory seconds at a party store whose factory firsts are pathetic

but tackiness of the merchandiseaside this crown respresents a perpetuation

of all that is wrongheaded and atavistic about values and priorities


it maybe argued that a company called “burger king” is stuck with certain baggage

but imagine if they took the card stock and made of it an education opportunity

then changed the name and direction in one fell swoop with “burger origami”

can still be the home

of the Whopper Crane
