Description
ASDA is a budget end supermarket in the UK that is wholly owned by Walmart.
My wife had a blood sugar dip that meant she had to eat quickly so we had a brief ASDA dining experience……..it was memorable for all the wrong reasons. Wrote this sitting at the table in one great rant…..good to get it off my chest!

ASDA Dining

Salty sugary cardboard shit
I feel so angry I want to hit
The boss of Asda smack in the face
Is this what he's reduced the human race to
Battery hens refuelled with shit
Made to wait and charged for it.

So that's your idea of a dining experience
It was my idea of hell
Is this where the pursuit of profit has led us
I feel too ill to tell

Sitting here in your lime green hades
Surrounded by the obese 
I loathe your contempt for customers
And imagine the sweaty crease
Of your fat arse on a chairman's stool
While you laugh at what you've achieved
Reducing dining to a production line
Taste sacrificed to greed.

But customers should not put up with it
Your food is after the rate
The word "service" is just a joke to you
We're not even worth a plate.

So then Mr boss of Asda
In your ivory tower in Leeds
Come on down to Grantham
And see how peasant's feed.
You can't keep getting away with it
Treating shoppers with disdain 
If you still haven't got the message yet
Then let me make it plain.

One day the people will rise up
Fill your store from near and far
Smash down the doors of the refectory
And demand a Michelin star!

ASDA
I know the lyrics are what's important in this tune, but what I really like are those faint background chords, which I'd like to hear a bid louder.

Telling it like it is!
Pulling no punches.

I've not been in Asda since I found out they're owned by Walmart and this doesn't make it any likelier that I'll reveise that opinion ;)

Great lyrics Mark. Straight from the heart (and the stomach).

Cheers

Kinda funny in a sarcastic mode. Needs to be said though, doesn't it?

Another fine effort!
