About the Poem

I love to do my errands as quickly and efficiently as possible. If I could do everything without ever having to get out of the car - I would.

I thought about all the things we can accomplish from the comfort of our drivers' seats - it's just too bad I don't have ALL of them here in my town.

Maybe I'll find a place that has them all - and move.

Drive Thru

I rose this morn with much to do -
Hopped in the car and off I flew.

No time for breakfast, that I knew -
Glad "Dunkin DoNuts" has Drive Thru.

In need of dollars, quite a few -
Went to the bank teller's Drive Thru.

Then filled all my prescriptions too -
At "Pharmacy's" brand new Drive Thru.

Some bills to mail in box of blue -
Off to the "Post Office" Drive Thru.

Picked up the laundry cleaned anew -
Just stopped at "Suds & Duds" Drive Thru.

With lunchtime near, my tummy's queue -
Got a "Big Mac" from the Drive Thru.

The car by then was low on fuel -
Full serve at "Shell", just Drive on Thru.

And when they fill the tank for you -
Your car's washed free - in their Drive Thru.

Library books were overdue -
The curbside slot is a Drive Thru.

Then videos must go back too -
"Blockbuster" has their own Drive Thru.

In need of milk and bread, I knew -
I stopped at "Dairymaid's" Drive Thru.

The family asked "Please, can we do -
The "Drive In" show when dinner's thru???"

I can only say your piece inspired this fellow writer: It took me a while to get on thru All the things you labeled drive thru So, patiently I read and read About your each and every drive thru It seemed a week had gone on by Still no end to all the drive thrus The only final thing to say Are we finally, finally thru I figured one fun poem deserves another.

I enjoyed the poem alot, it really shows how fast paced our worlds has become. We also need to remember to take time out forourselves, and to relax. Great poem, I just loved it.

This poem is so funny. It maked me laugh so hard. it sounds like me.
its funny yet true
the drive thru is a part of our daily lives that we depend on in whatever we do
When you find this town can you let all us new Mums know please?! Good notion - could a "drive in" rest the readers ear once or twice? Entertaining!
LOL I loved this poem. :)
This poem truly reflects our life. Efficiency ruled, but yet it is poking fun at the lack of human contact, and taking life slow. Good job, author.
With 4 children involved in baseball, soccer, and 2 cheerleading teams, this poem describes my life. If it weren't for drive-thrus I don't know what I would do.
That is very original. In a room full of funny poems this one stands out!
this poem was funny as any I've ever read.
Pretty good but all those "drive thrus" really drive a person nuts.
This was so funny that I just had to print it out and post it on my fridge, THEN I had to send it to all my friends, THEN I had to the McDonalds drive-thru. (LOL!)
hahahahahha very silly i liked it
Couldnt stop laughing , I Loved it!

Very funny - almost a C&W type song!
