Ah…but that was a long time ago.
Today, I only have to go to the local supermarket
To get rice, noodles, papadams, a mango
Or the ingredients for a curry – what a racket!
‘Italian’ tonight for tes?
Well, there’s the sauce on that shelf
Next to the spagetti.
No need to do things by half!
Is it ‘chinese’ you fancy?
In that case, I’ll just pick up
Some bean sprouts, chinese cabbage, garlic – spicey;
Grab some meat, some ginger and that’s a wrap!
