Burger in New York (video of Andy Warhol)As I watchLike I am looking into a mirrorI see myself sitting and eatinga fast food hamburgerOne bite and anotherhow big the whopper isA true American stapleAnd the foodmaking us ableto call ourselvesObeseTo call our livesat leastWhere Rodney Allen RippyCan say he is cute as is Andy Warhol when we allSalute the American Dreamit seems eats one of these a dayBut at a closer examinationI see the scene and sayDo I really need to eatWhat we are fed in the Media?When lentil soup canfeed two thousand peoplecompared to a dozen whoppersHow obscene it is to watch Warhol eat it and know we grew upon the counting of the hamburgersof the local McDonald's golden archesand the freshness of the In and Out burgerWe murder with mad cow in the grinderWhy do we need ketchup when the dry fries are fixedWith saturated oiland don't forgetthe sodaThe liquid sugarthat I am sureyou are chugging as we finally get to the endof the delightful burgerunfinishedAnd wrapped up in the paper only to be thrownaway as garbageA mess we refuse To see without recyclingJust a bit too muchAndyMy sweet AndyWe might just be out of touch!
Wonderful. Andy would have loved the larger implications you've discussed here!
