An Ode To Pasta - Poem by Darby Holmes

Spaghetti, spaghetti, you are like confetti
Whether hot as lava
Or as cold as a yeti
Oh how I love spaghetti.

Lasagne, lasagne, sauce orange like naranja
Whether sweet like sugar
Or as spicy as cabana
Oh how I love lasagne.

Ravioli, ravioli, so good it’s unholy
Whether creamy like milk
Or green like guacamole
Oh how I love ravioli.

Gnocchi, gnocchi, great like karaoke
Whether earthen and oaky
Or fiery and smoky
Oh how I love gnocchi.

All this great pasta
It makes me eat faster
I have just one question
Will it cause indigestion?

    The question as to whether pasta could cause indigestion - am not in a position to answer since am not a dietician. It's a lovely poem, well articulated and nicely penned with conviction. I like the rhyme scheme of the piece. Thanks for sharing. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply

    All this great pasta..

    I wonder.. your name is not Italian, but maybe you've some ''Italian genes'' in your genoma.. ;)

    greetings from Italy
