A Pizza Piece
Nick Balmforth


Pizzas piping hot
Delivered to your door;
Buy one, get one free--
Who could ask for more?

Thin crust, deep pan,
Mozzarella cheese;
Margherita, pepperoni,
Any taste you please.

Extra toppings yours to choose,
Take your pick of four:
Black olives, jalapenos,
Anchovies and more.

Small pizzas, large pizzas,
Some of family size;
Highly spiced and ready sliced;
They’re sure to appetize.

And for those who sometimes seek
A strong taste to embrace,
Choose peri-peri, barbeque,
Hot chillies, garlic base
Yes pizzas are delicious,
A dish for all to savour;
So three loud cheers for Italy--
 She’s done the world a favour.

The favorite of the kids in Naples, Italy, is hotdog and French fry.
