LETTER: The Big ‘C’ Crises

MY name is Kirk and I am in Rotherham as an amateur poet. I thought you may be interested in a poem I wrote concerning the recent Kentucky Fried Chicken crisis.

The Big ‘C’ Crises

An epidemic of high proportions is sweeping across the nation
Chicken restaurants have closed doors, no one’s at their frying station
If you want chicken that is fried I’d advise you of hesitation
And don’t make Kentucky your port of call choose a different destination
Don’t be upset with Colonel Sanders with his limited creation
Just because you can't get your fix of chicken spiced sensation
I know that you’re not happy but it’s not worth all the frustration
It doesn’t make much difference with no chicken designation

Okay I can understand the disappointment that you may feel
When you can’t obtain a Bargain Bucket or a Zinger Meal
With chicken stuck in warehouses due to DHL’s stuck wheel
But the lack of chicken delivery is really no big deal
What’s the point in calling the cops, come on folks get real
What do you expect them to do go on a chicken steel
They’re meant to be the boys in blue it’s not for them to heal
The restaurants will be open soon there’s no need for you to keel

I don’t know why you’re so upset with the closer of KFC
With restaurants closing in the UK and across the whole country
They’re only shut a few days so there's no need for your plea
Fried chicken will be back soon at least to a degree
The lack of chicken shouldn’t ruin your night why don’t you let it be
There are other places you can eat so it doesn’t bother me
The fryers will be fired up again just you wait and see
So there is no reason for this outcry I hope you will agree

Why are people driving miles just for the taste of a finger licking?
There’s more to life than spicy wings or pieces of fried chicken
Don’t waste time on closed chicken shops your launch times are just ticking
Give Pizza Hut or Macdonald’s a chance, there’s more restaurants for the picking
People trying to charge large amounts with Bargain Bucket tricking
Don’t try and rip people off with fried chicken Ebay clicking
Isn’t there more to worry about than Kentucky chicken sticking?
Don’t be a silly Turkey or Bernard Matthews will come back kicking
Kirk, Rotherham
