Mama Mia, I want pizza!
Gotta call the pizzeria,
They got the free delivery,
To bring a pizza pie to me.

Mama Mia, where to call?
We got dozens of them all.
Thin or thick? Small or large?
How much do they wanna charge?

Mama Mia, whatís all on it?
Sausage, Mushroom, Pepperoni.
Add some onion if you please,
Make it large with extra cheese.

Mama Mia, one hour later,
Whereís that rubber rolling waiter?
Does he know Iím starving here?
Musta stopped to see his dear.

Mama Mia, heís here now!
Lost his way but found out how.
Allís forgiven, heís just great,
Tip him even though heís late.

Mama Mia, thank you Jesus,
For this spicy meal of pizza,
And for all youíve given me,
Every blessing comes from thee!

Mama Mia whatta feast.
Whatta lotta food for me.
Eat until Iím turkey stuffed,
Seems I just canít get enough.

Mama Mia, whatís that feeling?
Heartís afire and stomachís reeling.
Whatta glutton for the pizza!
Mama Mia, help me Jesus!

This is so funny, and I love the Italian beat: Mama Mia, love that pizza... Mama Mia, help me, Jesus!

This is adorable and hysterical at the same time. You had me grinning from the first line. Though only thing I would change is the word got to have so it would be grammatically correct. But that's just one of my little hang-ups and probably most people wouldn't notice or care. I think you have quite the flair fro writing fun poems. The ending was a hoot to and a nice message about paying the consequences for craving such junk food. Though it's often worth the heartburn. :)

What a cute, fun poem!! :D It surely does show how an excess of "junk food" does have uncomfortable consequences, though! I'm craving a big piece of VEGGIE pizza right now! :) Great job!
