Nando’s Sonnet by Adesina Aanuoluwapo (John) – Year 1 BA English and Creative Writing
A plate of chicken wings please,
and a curry rice on the side.
Supply of drinks that do not cease,
my tongue yearns for a tasty ride.
A princely platter of Caesar salad,
with a tumbler of sparkling sangria.
While I sit writing this tender ballad,
about my affair with a veggie burger.
A bowl of sweet potato mash,
with beautiful thinly-cut chips.
Hunger causes my teeth to gnash,
leaving me with watering lips.
In shock she takes down my order,
asking politely, “Is all of this for you sir?”
