The Dessert of The Joy of Reading Books

Friends are always a trend,

But reading is a twosome friend,

Try this recipe for real fun;

Grind nature,

(For creamy texture).

Add some literature,

Boil some knowledge with fiction,

You’ll make yourself a diction,

Put the creamy nature on a plate of books,

Add the joys of quatered fun.

Your creamy dessert is ready!


The Biryani of Friendship

Like I’ve always said ,

Friends are always a trend,

I know this would be corny,

But this is a different Biryani,

The ingredients are rare,

Try it if you dare;

Add the cooking oil of faith,

in the saucepan of trust,

Temper it with onions of teamwork,

Add boiled rice of worth,

Sprinkle salt for fun,

and saffron for love.

Put cloves and cardamoms of help,

and cinnamon for sacrifice.

Add quatered tomatoes for togetherness,

coriander for a little pride,

And chilli for a spicy time.

Add Garam Masala to make it sublime.

Set in the plate of life.

Garnish a mint leaf and a piece of lime for awesome time.


The Recipe of Imagination

It has always been a trend to have best friend,

but I think if friends never existed,

For we alone existed.

We doth imagine;

We add chopped nature ,

Boil it with wonderful literature,

Stew it with humourous coincidences,

Put it in the stock pot of the soup of memoirs,

Then set it in a plate of history,

And garnish a little chemistry of lemon juice and mint leaves of the times before.
