I am now a pizza guy….

I am now a pizza guy….

Yesterday,I happened to pass by a pizza joint and could not resist the urge to enter it and order one.While I waited for my pizza (it was evening rush hour),I scribbled my thoughts on the borders of a take-away menu pamphlet.Here is my effort.Seems childish,but they say at 63,one becomes child-like again.Savour its delicious simplicity and spread the aroma,if you like it…..!! 

I am now a pizza guy….

 

With fast food culture spreading,

With shortage of time for elaborate cooking,

With ease of telephonic ordering,Hi !

I have now become a pizza guy …...

 

Regular circular,square or heart shaped fun,

With toppings of cheese,onions or capsicums,

Its friendly warmth is always welcome,Oh boy !

I have now become a pizza guy…..

 

My sleepy tastebuds wake up going ting-a-ling,

My appetite,hunger pains make my tummy spin,

I treat myself,wishing bread,paratha,roti a bye !  

I have now become a pizza guy…..

 

Pizza joints now here,there and everywhere,

Screaming banners,offering heavenly yummy fare,

Men or women,kids or elders,all can now for a pizza die,

I have now become a pizza guy….. 

 

By the time my pizza had arrived (in about 20 minutes or so) I had completed the above four verses.I had to stop there to enjoy my pizza-hot and sizzling !!

 

Try composing a poem when you visit a pizza parlour next time and are waiting for your order to be fulfilled.

    Jo humaare mein hai daal roti…Pizza mein kahaan hai hoti…Par aapki kavita padh kar…Sochti hoon ek baar kha loon pet bhar…

    Dear Broca ji,
    Your lip-smacking poem” I am now a pizza guy” – oh, what a spring and sprint you’ve packed it with! I’ve loved it; and sent the following response just now to MI (excluding the footnotes). Hope you’d love it too.

    Hi there! Reading your sweet-sixteen lines on the sizzling pizza;

    Drooling, I joined the line leading to a point in Amritsar.

    Wow! When my turn came at last, I grabbed them right and left lotsa.

    Umpteen orders and servings, yeah – washed it down with a spritzer;

    All the night turning a waltzer, my hand holding a tazza.

    Jai Jatinder! Your impromptu lines should grab the Pulitzer.

    Your jingling change of ‘tingling’ into the tangy ‘ting-a-ling’

    And the lyrical “have now become a pizza guy”, ah Singh!

    What a refrain! So lilting, titillating, scintillating!

    Wow Jatinder,

    After reading your random thoughts on Pizzas on BOLOKIDS , those who do not like pizzas too will want to try some. Though Im not a Pizza girl (at 64) but I shall surely try a pizza to see if it tastes as good as your description of it. Thanks
