Ready to Serve the "Scetti"


Reddy is real - as a composite of all my Paisan family members

In the seaside town of Almaretti

lives a man named Reddy Spaghetti

with one thought he holds steady

to make the world a better 'scettii'.

In a jar, a bottle, a pot, or a can

of Reddy's there's none better than.

Something else from the Reddy man,

You can't say his poem with a dead pan.

"Man does not live by Prov-alone,

a good wine helps to set the tone.

Tell one friend, than tell many,

Reddy says - it's all good - Sta Bene!"

      Genna, I think we need more talk show hosts like Larry Glick and Norm Nathan of the old WBZ. Silliness is what this world lacks in this still new 21st century.. There's no more Red Skelton, Steve Allen or Johnny Carson to help us out. We are on our own.. Laughter helps stir the boiling pot that is the world and lets some of the pasta get unstuck from the bottom.

      Thanks John. A radio host many years ago had a motto I do my best lo live by, "Try to leave the world a little sillier than you found it." Good advice back then, and even better in these troubled times.

      A fun poem here Bill, though I was expecting a spaghetti recipe hub lol. I am glad to see you trying out your illustration skills as well. Good job.

      Thanks Linda. Reddy is a combination of family members from many years ago who on Sundays would gather at the house of my "Nonna". She was the master chef but everyone pitched in to help. I was lucky enough to be one of those selected to roll the Gnocci, a potato based dumpling pasta that is rarely found in 'Italian' restaurants and when it is, it is rarely good enough to be worth trying.

      I love your drawing of the Spaghetti man. How could I not read your poem after seeing his happy face. The poem was also very enjoyable.
