When coffee costs more than $1

Would you like fries with that?
Would you like fries with that?

When coffee costs more than $1

And gas costs nearly 4

But cereal’s on sale 2 for $6!

Don’t forget that’s two combos at the drive-in next door.

When grapefruit is 10 for $10

And eggs are a dozen for 3

Blink to forget the price on that lettuce

This ain’t a Whole Foods in my kitchen pantry.

Cooking for fuel; Empty list, empty tummy

Deserts have more vegetation than my local grocery.

An apple? A tomato? Can’t put food on the table

So we drive to a place where extra fries come free.
