CHEERS TO GREAT FRIENDS AND ZIGNI

Lamb meat, peppered salad

And giant white injera

Zigni is three things awesome

All brought together

 SANYO DIGITAL CAMERA

The venue is Asmara

The starter

Black Eritrean coffee

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERA

That’s oh-so-interesting

Even when the cup’s totally empty!

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERA

Then boredom sets in

As all await the coming

Of Zigni

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERA

And when at last it arrives

Everyone gets focused!

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERA

Zigni served steamy

Makes people happy

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERA

Hands get greedy

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERA

And dudes get romantic

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERA

Zigni is perfect time

To gossip

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERA

And shock somebody

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERA

Just so they forget to eat

And you have more to yourself!

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERA

So whatever you do

Keep your eyes on the plate

Cuz  when others get arguing

The rest of us carry on

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERA

And it means all the difference

At the end of the night

Cuz while some sit stuffed and full

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERA

Others stare at the table

Reminiscing what they missed

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERA

Xigni is an awesome experience

That everyone should try sometime

Cuz great food brings friends together

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERA

And makes crazy people

An ecstatic lot!
