The Night of the Knives

In the Pizza Express
The young man on the next table
Asks the waitress
Do you have the new knives?
She says, We are supposed to have them by now
But they haven’t arrived yet

The young man continues,
Because I was in Stratford the other day…
He lets the sentence hang
And does a cutting pizza mime
Then, as she walks away he says,

They’re one hundred times better.
