The Good, the Bad and the Krunchy

As he nears the end of his degree, Jay Meros looks back on three years of fast food (through haiku)

TLDR

STORY THE FIRST – KRUNCHY FRIED CHICKEN – FALLOWFIELD – MEAL OF CHOICE – NUMBER 4 (with a drink)

Fillet burger meal,

Or possibly a snack box,

I would die for you.

 

STORY THE SECOND – SPICE KITCHEN – CURRY MILE – PREFERRED MEAL – £2 DONNER

Whenever I’m drunk,

Two pounds for meat, salad, bread,

Value tastes so good.

 

STORY THE THIRD – DIXY CHICKEN – FALLOWFIELD – PREFERRED MEAL – JUST CHIPS

Chicken can’t compete,

Not awful, but not unique,

Get me to Krunchy.

 

STORY THE FOURTH – TJ’S FAST FOOD – PICCADILLY – PREFERRED MEAL – ANYTHING FROM A BIN

I came to you once,

Watery fish and raw chips,

I’ll never again.

 

STORY THE FINAL – SANGAM’S – CURRY MILE – PREFERRED MEAL – CHEESY CHIPS WITH MANGO SAUCE

The staple of youth,

Better kebabs than Abdul’s,

Cheesy chips, divine.
