My Kitchen Expedition

Blissful are the times when you are home alone
For few days in the year when your wife is gone
It was one of such coveted occasion
And time for my kitchen expedition

I noticed a sole packet of stems of lotus
During my morning round to the fridge
I hit by brainwave for a new recipe
Of complexity level of famous Worli sea-link Bridge

While on the way to office
Concept kept evolving in my mind
By the lunch time it reached to crescendo
And I was ready with my culinary design

Now like all good managers
I wanted my blueprints goes through a review
And during one of many coffee sessions
Asked one female colleague for her view

Her views were important
In my experimental kitchen game
What If I spoil the dish
I needed somebody to blame

She asked some sharp question
As it was her domain
What does a review mean?
If it doesn’t find a few stain

With bill of material in my hand
I launched my kitchen mission
And to my utter dismay
Found two vital ingredient missing

All best laid plans
Have habit of falling apart
But I am not to be undone
By this unexpected false start

Archimedes’s and Bernoulli’s laws
Are not just principles of physics
Now I was learning through this experience
Kitchen has its own element of dynamics

I needed apply now the principles of positivity
When faced with adversity, don’t crib and feel tired
Innovation is the need of hour
Mid course correction is what required

I did manage to innovate
Brought a happy end to my kitchen story
Dished out a delicious and appealing masterpiece
And basking in self praise of my culinary glory
