Ode to Panda Express

O Panda Express
How do I love thee?
Let me count the ways

I love thee for your lovely Orange Chicken
in all its breaded, fried, sugary glory
For your stir-fried eggplant and tofu item
its syrupy, garlicky delight
For your clever 2 item combo menu option
where the half steamed rice, half chow mein combo
makes me feel like I'm rejoicing in a 3-item meal
I love thee for your consistency
At any Panda Express I see
Your bright orange spherical lanterns
Hanging from your ceilings, in two rows of three
I love thee for the mere six dollars and twenty-two cents
that the 2-item combo costs me
Smiles, garlicky breath, of all my life! --- and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.

O Panda Express
