Not Oft Served

The reason why a popular treat is frequently unavailable is being investigated.

If you don’t have enough now to worry about
and decide to go get a McFlurry, there’s doubt
the machine will be working; they’re often kaput.
So, a federal inquiry’s now underfoot.

There aren’t any issues with burgers and French fries;
the problem arises when somebody then tries
to cap off their meal with that frozen confection.
Their order is placed, but encounters rejection.

There’s so many flavors for someone to choose from;
that station is manned by some stripling who chews gum,
whose blasé response is, “I’m sorry, it’s broken.”
When jonesing for soft-serve… no sadder words spoken.
