Chilli, chilli met my eyes
I had a dream, it was a pure delight;
I was in need of a snack one wintry night!
To my refrigerator I softly crept,
While all around me gently slept
I opened the door and on the shelf
Sitting proudly; by itself
Was my dream, I shed a tear
My perfect, perfect, cornucopia
There, perfect in the round,
The gourmet dish had I found!
Before my eyes, a Higgidy Quiche?
Oh so tempting and within my reach.
I saw a sweet, tomato layer;
And offered up a thankful prayer.
As scattered around; oh what a prize
Chilli, chilli met my eyes.
Red and green, all the hues
My eyes and brain were infused
With tastes to come and pleasures spent.
I cut a slice, a small segment.
Upon a mild and cheesy base
Oh such pleasures will I embrace
Upon my lips; oh the heat and cold
The sweet, sweet fruit and chilli bold
But, before I fulfil my fervent wish
I wake and gone is my special dish
My heart is broken, my taste buds too
So Higgidy, my sanity is now down to you?
Can you make a dream come true?
Can you please, perfection pursue?
Can you make this fellahs wish
And create a tomato & chilli dish?
