Nestled down on old MacDougal:
An old cafe not for the frugal.
Its leather booths are sure to please!
But burgers come without the cheese.
A scathing glance, an icy tone:
“The chef suggests it on its own.”
This burger costs ya thirty bucks:
Your screaming wallet self-destructs.
But still you crave that tempting treat:
Corner Bistro, you can’t compete.
