No pizza of mine
will have those fishes packed in brine.
I must agree they do not taste fine.
I like mushrooms, peppers, and extra cheese.
However, I ask one favor please.
I do not want pizza with anchovies.
For some other folks who like meat,
sausage and pepperoni can be neat.
Those little fishes are salty and never sweet.
Very few ever consider them a treat.
Therefore, before the pizza gets cold,
I want you to place those anchovies on hold.
