'Poetic Pizza' Pieces For Poemhunter Pals....[fantasy Poem/Pizza Creation; Personal]

Rating: 4.3


Kanav Justa suggested I share my pizza with PoemHunter friends,
but I’ve found, when trying to send real pizza, my wife’s computer bends.
So you PoemHunter friends will have to settle for.... slices of my thoughts.
You’ll have to settle for “Poetic Pizza” Pieces my mind and pen have wrought.

Instead of dough for its foundation, I use what I see and hear and think.
Instead of an oven for baking, I bake on notebook pages (or paper scraps) with ink.

Instead of tomato or pesto sauce I spread a layer of imagination and/or knowledge.
“Pizza” is one of the few things I feel I can make well, and I need not...... to have gone to college.

Instead of cheese I at times use insight, advice, and/or humor; rarely it is sleazy.
Valsa George enjoys a taste of my “humour”, though some of it.... may be cheesy.

Instead of extra toppings of peppers, mushrooms, fish or meat,
I sprinkle most of my slices with yummy rhymes, making them..... so 'right' to eat.

My “pizza” and “slices” come in three sizes: Large, Medium, and Small.
I have an appetite for Extra-large myself, but I wish to please you all.

I hope you find some “Poetic Pizza” pieces that you like,...... none TOO HOT, nor TOO COLD,
and if any of you diners have complaints, PLEASE let me know it. BE BOLD!

POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
i have named two of my ph friends. my ph photo shows me eating a slice of pizza. i put marks around the word 'right' because i was taught that 'right' means the opposite of 'left', but the word has come to be used (by me as well) instead of the word 'correct'. of course right and left also have political meanings as well 'these days'. i purposely use two spellings for the word(s) humor/humour in order to humor everyone, whether they speak the 'king's english' or the CORRECT ENGLISH language! bon appetite! ! :)

Liked your ‘Poetic Pizza’! I think every poet would appreciate your expression… “Instead of dough for its foundation, I use what I see and hear and think”. Most importantly, there is a comical touch with fitting rhyming words! Enjoyed the amusing piece carrying some beautiful poetic substance in it! ! Dillip

I generally like real pizzas with peppers and lots of cheese. Your poetic pizza is new - it has me interested. I can relish it several times -unlike the real ones, which get over, i no time! Your rhymes are quite yummy! Let me try for some time and then my feedback!
