When pizza calls

MmmmmIf on arrival late from toil,
you find a pot still clean to boil,
but glancing in the fridge recoil
at all the store left there to spoil.

Your stomach roars for just a crumb,
what once was bread has turned to scum!
So dashing through the door you’ve come
to get some pizza Mmmm…

Looking at your phone you fret
the closing time will soon be met
a shattered dream, a losing bet
a cheesy meal you’ll never get.

But as you slide around the bend
a light there yonder bucks the trend
you make it just before the end
“One large pizza!” Mmmm…
