I looked into my fridge tonight and all that I could find,
Were lots of bits and pieces, which had me in a bind.
Oh, what could I create, to satisfy the rumblings,
From lots of bits and pieces and associated grumblings?
A cup of curly pasta, a grater full of cheese -
A dash of chilli sauce - yes! Surely that will please.
A bowl of last night's rice. A chunk of pepperoni,
Onion, pepper, ham - hands off. That's for adults only.
How about an omelette? Whisk up the milk and eggs,
Eyeball down the wine bottle; sniff sadly at the dregs.
Two tins of spaghetti! Oh, what a find!
Toast the crusts of stale bread, nobody will mind.
A limp looking lettuce, grated carrot and some rocket,
Sorry 'bout the bits and pieces! Today I'm out of pocket.
