Poem: What have you got? Pickles, pickles and more pickles

Knock - knock! What have you got?

Pickles, pickles and more pickles.

How many pickles do you have in there?

One, two, three, four.... eight of them


First is the spicy lemon, the zestiest of them all

And second is tangy tamarind, the best one of the lot

The next one is wood apple, delectable on the tongue

Followed by special kenaf, God's own gift to us

And then there is mango with mustard, ever classic it is

Coming up is my favorite: the tantalizing tomato

Seventh is the cool cucumber, it is as good as the mango one

And the last one is red chilli, the spiciest of them all


Do you have any left if I may ask?

Indeed you may, but I am sorry I ate them all

Which ones did you like the most?

I loved all of them, and I will get more of them

Knock - knock! What have you got?

Pickles, pickles and more pickles.

 - For the Telugu people's love of pickles :)

// Pickles are God's gift to the people of Andhra and one of our best creations in the culinary world. //

Yours sincerely,
An Andhraite who is an ardent fan of pickles
