Warm Certification


A wedge of frozen pizza; not a lunch to
die for unless its ecology impresses – &
it does. This is economy of suppressed
effort aiding bite, chew and taste with
no loss of gustatory flair – the flavour
survives despite plebeian fears that at
best even an affair with the microwave
rates only warm by their certification

Such posturing is wasted; claiming this
nothing but affectations of gourmands
too erudite in their self-justification to
be taken seriously leaves the science
gloriously aloof; but hey, the clincher
is – there’s no tendentious waiting!
