Simplicity, always, brings with it a unique charm,
A feeling of contentment and blessed calm!
It spells out warmth, love and makes one feel right at home,
No stress, no pressure, no pretences and no need to froth and foam!
In that sugarbeans and roti, the pleasure of biryani is tasted,
Even if it was the last supper’s leftover, it is never wasted!
In simplicity, appreciation of a fine dish is genuinely found,
And by the ropes of high expectations you will never be bound!
So, Moulana, when you invite me for your next waleema meal,
I will not be offended if, upon me, you dont spend a great deal!
I know that you are scared to say Aameen aloud, to the above,
So, say it silently, and from your dastarkhan, you wont get a shove!
