? 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?)
