Ode to a Burrito
A burrito is the noblest lunch,
An edible package, delicious to munch.
Carefully cradled and carried to work
Then tragically shared with a red-headed jerk.
I'm sorry, kind Sir, or Senorita,
This rhyme contains references to Carmelita.
It's also got Olaf, I'm sorry to say.
So it really is terrible. (Why do you stay?)
A couplet might help in a time of duress,
When you cannot avoid a certain girl in a dress.
A hairnet might also be useful to you.
And plans for escape. A taxicab, too.
When villainy lurks at your given school,
Remember to follow this platinum rule:
Whenever your lunch includes a burrito
At some point you may need to go incognito.

To my kind Webmaster,
I am haunted by the terrible events surrounding Larry, Your Waiter at Prufrock Preparatory School. It is my desperate hope that my research might help other burritos avoid such a wretched fate.
I am enclosing the Beef & Bean Burrito recipe I have pieced together from my research, as well as photographs that may or may not have been acquired from a certain vault at the Netflix corporation. Please post this information here, so that other burritos might enjoy a less treacherous fate.
With all due respect,
Lynley Jones, Proprietress
