Lunchtime On The Road - Poem by Liilia Talts Morrison

Lunchtime happens on the Road
Time to see and to be seen
Sushi, tofu, miso soup
Creole crabs from Guadeloupe
Green umbrellas, orange wraps
Quaint tattoos and baseball caps

Lunchtime happens on the Road
Time to see and to be seen
Pizza done in rustic style
Cognizenti find worthwhile
Models sporting rhinestone pumps
Inline skaters doing jumps

Lunchtime happens on the Road
Time to see and to be seen
Canines of the finer set
Far above a common pet
Nibble on a salmon dish
Never touching tuna fish

Lunchtime happens on the Road
Time to see and to be seen
Peddlers offer palm frond hats
Masseurs spread blue yoga mats
Chocolate truffles offered free
Health freaks sip on strong green tea

Lunchtime happens on the Road
Time to see and to be seen
I observe these daily rites
Colorful and upbeat sights
Then when I have had my fling
Go and eat at Burger King.
