Turkey Burger

by Simeon Koh

I had a coupon
For a free medium drink
With a purchase of a turkey burger

I had stumbled upon
An ad that made me think
Whatever happened to a normal hamburger?

The same old sesame bun
But patty not brown but grayish-pink
It was hamburger’s little brother

Of him I got a little too fond
I hardly noticed him shrink
By my delicious luncheon murder

I had a coupon
For a free medium drink
An excuse to try a turkey burger
