A gathering place for the young and
Middle aged to dine on fast food
And to relax. There’s a young man
Eating sushi and playing on his iPhone.
There are two guys and a girl
At the center table sharing fries and
Discussing the latest Harry Potter movie.
The dining room attendant is sweeping the floor
And complaining to a coworker about a mess left
Behind by a rude male student.
There’s a casual business meeting happening
At the far right corner table with four men in suits.
They even have a chart containing sales reports,
And are discussing the agenda over
Fatty burgers and greasy fries.
Then there’s the lone woman
Eating a Ham and Cheese sandwich from home,
Wondering how she’s going to do her next
College students abound,
Come together to have a moment to laugh
And enjoy each other’s company before
Heading off to their Art, History,
And Management classes.
