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.

|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???"
