Pizza poem by Iris Carden

It’s hot and it’s fresh.
It’s ready to please.
With spicy salami
and hot gooey cheese.

A small touch of basil,
oregano and chives.
A warm bread base,
the taste comes alive.

Rich red tomato sauce
adds a flavour hit.
You know once we start,
we won’t stop eating it.

A yeasty, cheesy smell,
aroma of herb and spice.
You put on the movie.
I’ll get us each a slice.
