What do you want on your pizza?




The neighborhood pizza place
requires
quick decision-making
and a twenty-minute wait.


Life in the fast lane
ain’t so easy.
It tosses you up in the air
and flattens you at times.

A thin crust plain slice
with no extra toppings
is a simple solution
without
further expectations
and limited risk.
The ordinariness
wipes away easily.

A thick crust
loaded with
pepporoni
extra cheese
anchovies
mushrooms
peppers
complicates 
matters.
It’s messy
with a lot of choices
spilling
over the edge
of the paper plate
all at one time.
It’s life
at its untidiest.

A veggie pizza
loaded
with Vitamin B and C
is the must-do
for the health nut
unable to let go
once in a blue moon
and rationalize
the ups and downs
of the scale.

Life’s 
challenges
are in the choices
on the menu
at a pizza place.
