Life Is Like A Pizza Pie

Your life is like a pizza pie, 
With wisdom you should long or yearn; 
It is not just a food to eat,
But also a lesson to learn.

With different sizes it is
Available just anywhere; 
When you leave your house to buy one, 
As you return it is a square.

Eager to see the bread inside, 
The package with care you handle; 
The moment you open the box,
What you have found is a circle.

It's so hard to turn a blind eye
To this tasty, delightful dough;
As you begin eating a piece, 
It's triangle, you ought to know.

Constant change is in the world,
From good reason to alibi; 
Your behavior improves in time, 
Your life is like a pizza pie.

This clever poem draws parallels between life and the experience of obtaining a pizza. The poem's voice thinks he's getting a square, because that's what his eyes obviously tell him. But then SURPRISE when he opens the box, it's actually a circle, but then changes yet again to ANOTHER shape, when his slice is a triangle. This is very much the way life goes! We keep discovering we had it wrong, don't we! It can be frustrating. I have marked this as a favorite. It's a smart, funny poem, Bernard!

Just love the wonderful aroma of pizzas, but unfortunately am gluten intolerant, so one of the few indulgences that I had to give up. Love the comparison to Life.
