 THE MAGIC PIZZA
by Ali Christie

Eh’m a pizza, a magic pizza,
Bein stuck in the freezer’s a scunner –
So Eh grew twa legs an oor ago
An fae Tesco Eh did a runner.

Eh’m a pizza, a gaun-ma-dinger pizza,
Eh’m skitin doon the street,
An giein a muckle cheesy grin
Tae the dumfoonert fowk Eh meet.

Eh’m a pizza, a please-mehsel pizza,
Eh can dae whitiver Eh like –
Fleh wi cheese and tomatae wings
Or gae dancin doon a dyke.

Eh’m a pizza, an oan-the-rin pizza,
The polis are efter me –
But they needna think that ony o them
Are haein me fur thir tea.

Eh’m a pizza, a thumb-yir-neb pizza,
Eh’ll tell them tae git loast.
Oh jings – Eh’m a puggilt pizza noo –
Eh’ve stertit tae defroast!
