And How Was Your Morning?

McDonald's Profit Trails Estimates As Sales Slump Persists

It’s been weeks,

so we meet at McDonald’s at 5:30 a.m.

for a hot breakfast,

only we are greeted by a locked door, and a sign:

“sorry for the inconvenience,”

so we spend ten minutes of precious time

searching another location

while others this morning are searching


for dead loved ones in Nepal.
