♫ MADRAS IT'S BECAUSE I'M A LONDONER ♫
You'll probably think I'm proper dumb
Keep going on about my popadom
I'll never waver from that food I savour
I don't curry favour just love curry flavour.
I somosa you're thinking Indian rajs
In Buenos Aires they eat Argy bhajis
Please let me chat about that rogue Ann Josh.
Can I have a korma rant before my nosh?
Puri and simple, my boon as a writer
Sooner or later..bhuna 'n' a raita
Singing hymn eating rice and paratha
♫ "We pilau the fields and scatter." ♫
Dahl have to be careful with a vindaloo
Make sure I am close enough to aloo
Glum lover of rice starts to boo hoo hoo
♫ "Its basmati and I'll khori if I want to". ♫
Cumin to this journal with poetry that's so drab
"He's down the paneer" I hear you stab
My version of the hokey cokey borders on fab
♫ "Chapati left foot in.. and you shish it all kebab." ♫
(you are naan the wiser, are you?)
