Ode To The Chickpea

Chickpea, chickpea
you are a very delectable bean


Chickpeas are healthy and delicious

 And fit in every dish, even the most ambitious.


You can blend them into hummus for a dip

And if you are lucky you can use a gluten-free chip


You can season and roast them crunchy

With a bit of paprika they are quite punchy


You can make Italian ceci and rigatoni

that is a version of the most common macaroni.


When I am in India I eat it’s flour
that is used for fritters and flat bread with superpower


Chickpea, chickpea
you are a very delectable bean

Sometime I forgot to make a dinner plan

So I just eat you out of the can
