I DONT CURRY FAVOUR JUST LOVE CURRY FLAVOUR

? 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?)

You are too kind, Ben, but making you laugh is a great incentive for me. Let's face it, it has to be nonsense in order to fit so many curry names in..haha..but that's the fun!Thanks again

Would I dream in trying to curry favour with you? Most definitely! Funny, silly and clever.

Bravo! This is wonderful,so full of little gems.
To say I enjoyed it,is a masterpiece of understatement.
"Partly sage,prose-merry on-line" is inspired,though it's unfair to pick that out when it is all so clever.
Dee.
