An open letter…err “poem” to Burger King – Timbit (by studentasim)

Dear Timbit
You’re now a misfit
So many years
So very delicious
Miss this

When I was a kid
Visiting my auntie
Getting the Timbits!

Corporate America
Can’t win this
First the penny
Now the pack of twenty

Burger King how can you ignore history?
Canadian memories, growing up

You’re a King but lack wisdom
Your advisors are not from this kingdom
You made Timbit the final victim
Get out of this Canadian system!

Loyalty to you?
No loyalty to you
You took away convenience like the drive-thru
I need it all the time
Parties and the grind
Always on time

honey dip, chocolate glazed, fritter and dutchie
How can you take away something so yummy?!

Bin in corporate and takeovers too
Don’t ignore sentiments and feelings fool!
When you’re good to your people
They’ll be good back
And when you kill their Timbit
They’ll be ready to attack
One way or another
Don’t ignore the other

Stop learn and listen
Reconsider your decision
It’s a Canadian invention
People even buy it with their pension!

It’s dear to our heart
Easy to buy
Gives a sweet start
Don’t take it away
Remember these words
Make it stay

Will love you so much
Hail BK, protector of the Timbit!
Now can I have some Timbits with lunch?!
