Waiting On Pizza
Reader Star Rating:
We waited for the pizza to
Arrive by six o' three,
But when an hour past that came,
I sensed hostility.
"What's taking it so long to come!"
My daughter cried and said,
"It's only two large pizzas with
A side of garlic bread."
I called the store to find out why
Our pizzas had not come;
But when I asked, the lady laughed,
And started acting dumb.
"Why John came back an hour ago.
The pizzas have been sent."
I told her then no pizzas came,
And kids were getting bent.
At that, she said, "Excuse me please,"
And then she left the phone.
I waited as I overheard
Her speak then give a groan.
With that, her words came through the line,
As sweet as she could be,
"I'm sorry sir, you had to wait.
The pizzas will be free."
I thanked her as we both hung up,
And told my kids the news.
They jumped with joy, as wailing stopped,
And gave no more boo hoos.
The pizza was delivered then
To feed my family.
We finally got free pizzas at
The time of eight o'three.
