Food Poems December 13, 2005

The foodie says…

I have this thing for silly little rhymes, specially the ones I compose! 🙂 If you can’t understand what i’m talking about, read this….

or better still, sing it to the tune of ‘My favourite things’ the famous song from Sounds of music.

Flambe that dances on brown roasted chicken,
Curries that that bubble when they boil and thicken,
Icy blue mocktails with spriglets of mints,
These are a few of my favourite things.

Dollops of icecreams stacked in a bowl,
Juicy Kebaabs laid on a bed of hot coals,
Jumbo grill sandwich with no onion rings,
These are a few of my favourite things.

Rich creamy Kulfi that slides out of moulds,
Crispy red parathas with layers and folds,
Caramel custard and all sorts of puddings,
These are a few of my favourite things.

When the clock ticks,
When the time stops,
When I’m famished and meetings are dreary and bore,
I simply remember my favorite things and then I’m not hungry anymore!

he he…. get the idea? lets read some from you ppl….. pick any famous (or infamous) song and write new lyrics for it… let those creative juices flow…… ah, there i go again!

    I headed straight for the poem without reading the intro para above it and even without knowing, my mind immediately started singing the first line itself in the tune of “My Favourite things” 😀 Then I realized at the end of the first stanza that it was the meant for that itself 🙂
    This is awesome, by the way… really creative.
