"WHAT YOU WANT IS WHAT YOU GET AT MACDONALDS!"
If that's what desire has come to,
the world will end, not in fire,
[Note: The first line was an advertising slogan for MacDonalds back in the 80s--maybe still in use? The remaining lines refer to a poem by Robert Frost about how some say the world will end in fire, some say in ice, and (says the poet) from what he's seen of desire, he can see how it might well end in fire, etc. My take is if "WHAT YOU WANT..." is something you can get at MacDonalds, your desires are burnt out.
