A tower of meat
Rotating on a vertical skewer.
Flanked by an onion on top
And a tomato beneath
Intermittently are placed chunks of fats.
As it roasts in the furnace hot
Grease and the juices fall in the receptacle
Drop by drop.
The shawarma man shaves off the meat from the tower
Into the receptacle
Full of grease and juices drops.
This mix of meat, fat and juicy drops
He transfers onto a roti hot.
Then on it is poured hummus, tahini and lemon juice.
Followed by pickled vegetables, cardamom and lettuce.
Then come the French fries
And the roll is made.
Heated a bit and served with
Mayonnaise and pomegranate concentrate.
