Moghul Meeting


I've just been to the Moghul
and had Podina Lamb.
I have the same each time I go:
It's just the way I am.
I had it with the special rice,
Peshwari Naan to share
with chums with whom I used to work;
we thought we'd meet up there.

We didn't have a pudding,
(does anyone partake?)
because we all had starters
(don't want our belts to break).
We chatted from the poppadoms
until we got the bill
and even then we carried on;
surprised we're not there still.

Our lives have gone their diff'rent ways
but still there is that link.
Not regular, these curry meets;
that's not the point, I think.
We worked together many years,
and though that life has gone,
it's like we've never been apart.
That's why we curry on.
