We have failed in teaching our kids Good Geometry, vis a vis the placement of cheese.

As a late Baby Boomer, born in the Fifties,
I felt that my first job was quite nifty.
Under aegis of Gold Arches, wearing uniform and hat,
my job was to match cheese with the patties.
That's that.

Having recently graduated from 10th grade Geometry,
I felt fully capable
of perfectly topping that burger with cheese.

We're dealing with three things that can simply be fun:
there's the circle of meat
and the square of the cheese
and it's symmetry when centered on bun.

After solving Euclidean Proofs in the classroom
of tangents, parabolas, circles, and squares.
I'd hope today's burger-makers could give some attention
to circles of patties and buns and cheese squares.

So, when is the last time you gently received
a chain-dispensed burger that could be perceived
as symmetrical circles and squares?

Or is it your experience that half of the cheese
is draped to the side and is stuck to the wrapper?

In society where "want fries with that?"
beleaguers the pride of our students,
How would you instill individual pride
in the placement of bun, meat, and cheese?

Or, are you willing to accept lowered expectations
and just slurp at the wrapper to get all the cheese?
