Wonderful day it is for the likes of me prohibited to EAT WHAT I WANT
Reasons several- may be health mainly- but keeping quiet sans eating I can’t!
Today May Eleventh a nice day “EAT WHAT YOU WANT DAY” very gratifying
Let me think more and enjoy the day-collecting what all I want-satisfying!
National Day celebrated with enthusiasm in the United States
Having breakfast for dinner-freedom to choose, have fluffy stack
Of pancakes with a side of bacon before bedtime stomach will be happy
Break the routine no tiffin box to be carried-lunch at a hotel-costly!
Enjoying the company and the break from the usual idli, dosa, curd bath
Getting kids involved- on this day let the kids decide what will be the menu
Creating opportunity for them to help out with the meal to likes of all
No counting calories and restricting from consuming foods-sans sense of guilt.
Man living to eat and eating to live-what is right and what not
Know not I! Yet eating has its joyful effect in me is great
Certain things for quite a long time and some very, very recent
So long as the eatables are tasty and healthy -quite decent!
It may look a funny day but has a meaning-fourth January
National Spaghetty Day- celebrates the dish served commonly
With sauce, meat balls and Parmesan cheese. People all over the world
Celebrate by feeding their families their favorite version of it bold.
Let us grab a fork and enjoy a steaming plateful on this day.
Spaghetti all the way back to the century, as the noodles do.
Pasta was invented in Asia thousands of years ago and
made it to Italy during the Arabian conquest of Sicily
Pasta, means “paste” popular commodity among the poor
It became a dish popular enough for the middle class dear.
“Health is wealth” golden words of the olden days valid for ever
If wealth is lost nothing is lost; if health is lost something is lost
Equally great words of wisdom society to constantly note
Alas! Society seems not taking it seriously and rots!
Young or old men or women, rich or poor’ educated or not
All fall sick and suffer at one time or other-unfortunate!
Many are our own making- not taking very seriously
And pay very heavy price for our carelessness unwisely.
